Nominees should be individuals with a recognized devotion to preserving the historical record of the specialty, and be a willing and active participant in the proceedings of the Board. 

Potential members of the Board of Curators could include: 

  1. Family physicians with an interest in the history of medicine, especially family medicine. 
  2. Family physicians who have demonstrated leadership qualities.
