Diversity Charge 
The ATA Board recognizes that successfully filling these leadership positions is critical to the vision and viability of the organization. In that regard, the ATA Board strongly endorses the concept that our organization should be led by a balanced and representative governing body that reflects the ATA’s membership in terms of gender, professional specialty, practice setting, and academic activities. Other opportunities for diversification are also recognized, including geography.

The Board has charged the ATA Nominating Committee to provide the membership with a slate of candidates to fulfill the Boards commitment to diversity and recommends nominating individuals from the following constituencies for the 2019 Ballot:

  • Laboratory Scientist
  • Oncologist
  • Pediatric Endocrinologist
