Elections to Be Held at Annual Business Meeting

The Ohio Foot and Ankle Medical Association will hold an election for positions on its Board of Trustees during the Annual Business Meeting (ABM), which will take place Saturday, November 4 at the Embassy Suites - Columbus Airport.

The Board of Trustees manages the affairs of the association and holds approximately five meetings annually. Elections are slated for the following positions: 

  • President
  • 1st Vice President
  • 2nd Vice President
  • Secretary-Treasurer 
  • At-Large Trustee

In addition, OHFAMA will elect APMA Delegates and an Alternate Delegate to represent Ohio at the 2024 APMA House of Delegates in Washington, DC.

Interested members should email to express their interest in running for one of the open positions. Nominations will also be accepted from the floor at the ABM.

New in 2023: Election of At-Large Trustee
OHFAMA members approved Proposition B-22 at the 2022 Annual Business Meeting, which modified the bylaws to provide each Academy with one trustee on the OHFAMA Board of Trustees and create two at-large trustee positions to be voted on by the membership at the Annual Business Meeting.

The changes provide Academies with equal representation on the Board of Trustees and enable the Association to recruit talented leaders from underrepresented constituencies to serve the organization as at-large trustees.

OHFAMA members will elect one at-large trustee at the 2023 ABM and a second at-large Trustee at the 2024 ABM to serve three-year terms on the Board of Trustees.

The responsibility of identifying and recruiting at-large trustees lies with the Leadership Development Committee, whose members are appointed by the president and approved by the Board of Trustees.

Committee members include Past President Karen Kellogg, DPM, MBA; Past President Richard Schilling, DPM; Past President Marc Greenberg, DPM, Southern Academy Trustee Amy Masowick, DPM; and Northeast Academy President Joy Rowland, DPM.

Leadership Development Committee Recommends Said Atway, DPM, for At-Large Trustee Position
The Leadership Development Committee recommends Dr. Said Atway for the role of at-large trustee.

Dr. Atway is the Clinical Associate Professor at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, and the director of the Limb Preservation Program at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. He is a graduate of the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, completed his residency at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, and is board certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery.

Dr. Atway will be nominated for the at-large trustee position at the 2023 ABM. Other nominations for the position can be made by OHFAMA members from the floor at the ABM.
