KMS seeks nominations for Board of Trustees
As members may recall, in 2013 KMS established a new nominations and elections process for KMS officers. Under the new process, the Nominating Committee will seek and consider recommendations for nominees from the general membership, component/county societies and specialty societies.
The Committee is charged with the task of nominating candidates who possess the integrity, skills and commitment necessary to enable the Board to properly exercise its governance and oversight role in the best interests of the Society. In making its nominations the Committee is directed to work towards a Board composition that is broadly representative of the Society membership, particularly in experience, geographic location, specialty and practice type. Physicians nominated to serve on the Board of Trustees must be members-in-good standing of KMS and their county medical society.
The online nomination form is available here. KMS members may be nominated by a colleague, component/county medical society or state specialty society; self-nominations will also be accepted.
If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact Allison Peterson via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at the KMS office (800.332.0156). Paper nomination forms are also available by request.
KaMMCO celebrates 25 years of service, advocacy
It was in the depths of the decade-long medical malpractice crisis that the KMS House of Delegates made the decision to form a professional liability insurance company to ensure that Kansas physicians would always have a trusted source of insurance protection. Twenty-five years later, that company has established itself as the market leader in our state, known for its strengths in advocacy, protection and service to its member physicians. It has also been recognized as one of the best run and innovative professional liability insurers in the nation, consistently ranked as a best-in-class performer among its peers.
As the health care system changes, KaMMCO will continue to evolve to meet the changing insurance needs of its members. It will be at the forefront with products and services that help the provider community manage risk in an uncertain world. Even as the health care landscape changes, KaMMCO will remain focused and true to its core mission of protection, advocacy and service to physicians.
KMS is extremely proud of KaMMCO's record of achievement since its founding in 1989. We are grateful to the loyal and highly competent staff, and the many physician leaders who have served as directors, officers and committee members over the years. Their support, leadership and vision have been instrumental to KaMMCO's remarkable growth and success.
