President's Message

By John McCarthy, MD | SCMS President


As I prepared to take over the helm of the SCMS leadership, the board was preparing for a change. It became clear that a new leadership model was necessary to remain fiscally responsible and we made a decision to change the administrative structure of the organization. We are returning to a model wherein we will be operating without a CEO. It is with regret that we announce that Dean Larsen, who served as our CEO for the last four years, will be moving on. During his tenure, we saw the development of our Wellness Program, 1st Wednesday Member Mixers, the Medical Education Task Force, a transition to a new office, and more. A lot has been going on and it has been important development for our organization. We continue to exist as a non-partisan voice in our medical community that serves the needs of our members.
