Board of Directors Elections – Voting Closes June 18
The ASPR Board of Directors election is now open. Online voting is open until June 18. This year we will elect the President Elect, Treasurer and three Members at Large. The Members at Large positions that are up for election are the newly defined Vice President of Education, Vice President of Engagement, and the Vice President of Research. The terms for these positions will begin in August 2013 and end in May 2015. The reason for the term ending in May 2015 is due to the transition of the ASPR Annual Conference from August to May that year. The official transition of Board Members occurs at the ASPR Annual Business Meeting which is held at the Annual Conference.
Online voting via the ASPR website will occur between June 4 and June 18, 2013. Ballots will be tabulated by the ASPR staff under the supervision of the Board. The results will be announced soon after by Scott Manning, ASPR President, on behalf of the Board of Directors.
All ballots must be cast online by 5:00 PM CST June 18th.

JASPR Feature: Guide to Getting Impact with Leadership
Guide to getting impact with leadership
By Allison McCarthy, Principal, Barlow/McCarthy, Plymouth, MA
Market knowledge is key in order to capture senior leaders’ attention for physician recruitment. Everyone agrees that leadership involvement is necessary for supporting well-defined search priorities, medical staff buy-in, adequate financial resources and market-attractive practice opportunities; however, the challenge is to capture their interest in just the right way to have an impact on recruitment outcomes.
Whether your leader is an administrator, physician, or a combination of the two, their world consists of numbers. Every decision they make, every action they take is based on operational, financial and/or market data. If our goal is to gain their involvement and participation, our approach must be to translate activities and processes into senior management “speak,” or numbers.
Research conducted by Barlow/McCarthy earlier this year validated this premise. Those senior leaders who were interviewed expressed a strong desire for prospect and candidate feedback to help them strengthen their recruitment approach and construct differentiating practice opportunities (the full research report is available at http://www.barlowmccarthy.com/resources/index). So how do we make this happen? What specific type of information will produce the greatest impact?
