The Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) voting membership voted to approve proposed changes to the bylaws that will change the composition of the Society’s Nominating Committee.
A minimum of 150 votes is required to establish quorum and this was exceeded with 284 votes registered. A two-thirds majority of those voting is required for bylaws passage, and this was exceeded with 77.5% support. Members voted in favor of three revisions to Article X of the SVS bylaws.
The committee’s size will remain the same, at seven members, but expand the diversity of perspective.
The changes affect the process for nominating SVS officers for 2023–24, which begins this month. The chair of the 2023 Nominating Committee is Kim Hodgson, MD.
