College of Physicians of Philadelphia. Office of the Secretary.

Hide Profile

The Office of the Secretary of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia was created during the organization of the College in 1787. The Secretary is the appointed officer of record. His original duties were to record the minutes and transactions of the College and preserve its documents and correspondence. In 1834, the Secretary was also empowered to keep lists of the Fellows and provide them with certificates of membership.

In 1863, the responsibility for notifying officers and committee members of election or appointment devolved upon the Secretary. An annual report on the fellowship became part of the Secretary's responsibilities in 1870. In 1990, the Secretary was empowered to perform "all the duties appropriate to his or her post as the elected recording officer of the College and assume the duties and powers of the President in the absence or temporary incapacity of both the President and President-Elect."
