He holds active memberships in the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) and the American Association of Medical Society Executives (AAMSE).

Mr. Markowski will join the ACCP on October 19 and officially become acting EVP and CEO on November 6, immediately following CHEST 2009, the ACCP's 75th annual meeting. His predecessor, Alvin Lever, will relinquish the position on November 5, after holding the CEO position for 18 years.

"For the last 18 years, Al Lever has served the College with passion and determination," said Dr. Mathers.

We look forward to his continued consultation and support of the College and The CHEST Foundation during the transition process and beyond."

The ACCP will celebrate 75 Years of Inspiration during CHEST 2009, the ACCP's annual scientific meeting held in San Diego, October 31 to November 5.
