AUDIT AND FINANCE COMMITTEE | AD-HOC
The Audit and Finance Committee is responsible for overseeing the organization’s finances and its financial management and ensuring that money is being spent according to the mission of the organization. Additionally the committee reviews unaudited monthly financial reports and the annual audit report, manages investments and works with management in preparing the annual budget. Its ultimate purpose is to deter or detect financial mismanagement or fraud. The committee meets three times annually (January, June, and around September/October). Additional meetings may be called on an as-needed basis.
OUTREACH COMMITTEE | AD-HOC
The Outreach Committee reviews and proposes initiatives to engage the members of the Chapter and other stakeholders in the State of New York. Topics of interest and discussion might include social media, press/news releases, a speakers’ bureau, website enhancements, etc.
NY-ARGENTINA PROGRAM COMMITTEE | AD-HOC
The NYACC announced its partnership with the Argentina Chapter of ACC in December of 2016. Currently in the development phase, the exchange program will likely include opportunities for New York fellows in training to spend 1-3 months in Argentina and vice versa. There will likely also be a meeting exchange.
WOMEN IN CARDIOLOGY (WIC) GROUP | AD-HOC
The Women in Cardiology (WIC) group will propose ways to advance the interests of practicing female cardiologists through the creation of professional development, mentoring and networking programs and may also recommend changes in training programs by promoting effective, efficient and diverse practice opportunities, such as promoting careers in cardiovascular medicine for women in all cardiovascular practice areas. *Note: Membership is limited to medical doctors.
FIT JEOPARDY GROUP | AD-HOC
This group helps to plan and implement New York’s semi-final competition of FIT Jeopardy, the winners of which go on to the national competition. The group is open to all NYACC members, although we prefer to have early-career physicians serve as the question writers. * Note: FIT Jeopardy contestants, those who actually compete in the game, must still be FITs in a New York State cardiovascular-related program by the time the national competition occurs at ACC’s Annual Scientific Session (which will be in Orlando in 2018 and in New Orleans in 2019), as well as be willing and able to attend both the state semi-final and national playoffs.
