Student Trustee Position

The PA History Society is accepting applications for the position of Student PA Trustee to serve on the Society’s Board.  The PAHx seeks to add a student PA for a one-year term from January 1, 2023 – December 31, 2023. Please note that students  must be enrolled in a North American PA program. You may download the Student Trustee Application packet here to read more about responsibilities, the mission of the PAHx, and the Program Director Acknowledgement form by clicking here.

Interested Student PAs should email a Letter of Interest, a CV or resume, and the completed Program Director Acknowledgement Form (located in the packet) to:

PAHx Nominating Committee, c/o Lori Konopka-Sauer at LoriK@nccpa.net

Applications will be accepted through September 9, 2022.

The student member will serve as a full voting member of the board.  The student will be expected to actively participate in the bi-annual meetings, summer conference call, and on one committee.  The Society will cover the hotel, flight, and meal expenses for the student Trustee to attend the bi-annual board meetings.

The PAHx Nominating Committee will review all student PA applications and conduct telephone interviews with the finalists.  Per the PAHx Bylaws, the NCCPA Board of Directors must vote to approve the PAHx Nominating Committees’ recommendation during their annual board meeting in November.  Candidates will be notified of the results by December.

PAHx Board members are expected to provide leadership and vision for the organization and have a fiduciary responsibility to the organization.  The student PA should have a genuine interest in the history of the PA profession and the mission of the organization.  The Society’s Board is considered a ‘working board’.  As such, the student Trustee will be asked to contribute content to the PAHx website; write a short article for one of the quarterly newsletters; participate on 1 Board Committee; participate on a New Board Member Conference Call; and actively participate during the Society’s Board meetings.

We are looking forward to having you be part of our team!
