The DCMS Board of Directors is a reflection of the Society membership, comprised of both primary and specialty care physicians from all areas of DuPage County. The Board sets policy that advocates for, informs and empowers physicians so they can focus on providing quality patient care. Society members are welcomed at Board meetings and engagement is encouraged. Our Executive Committee is responsible for managing the Society’s business. Comprised of the Society’s officers and several elected members of the Board, the Executive Committee meets monthly and remains nimble to assure the Society can quickly address members’ needs. The DCMS staff implements the directives of the physician leadership and assures the smooth flow of administrative activities.
