ACMG is led by a team of renowned medical genetics experts who comprise the ACMG Board of Directors. Hundreds of hard-working volunteers from all aspects of the medical genetics and genomics team including genetic counselors, clinical laboratory professionals and medical geneticist make up our volunteer committees. Our staff based in Bethesda, MD carries out the important daily work of the College to achieve the goals outlined in our Strategic Plan.
All ACMG/ACMGF committee, task force, and board members must complete a conflict of interest disclosure statement (the ACMG Participation Agreement) annually for each instance of committee/board/task force/ participation.

“It is an honor and a privilege to serve as the president of a national medical organization like the ACMG. This is an incredibly exciting and fast-moving time in our field, where medical genetics is becoming a major part and parcel of every aspect of medicine. I’m looking forward to playing a role in the best practices in genetics as well as improving genetics education for healthcare professionals and patients."

Dr. Klugman has held a number of positions within the ACMG (“the College”) including vice president for clinical genetics, ACMG’s representative to the American Medical Association’s House of Delegates, and reproductive genetics editor for Genetics in Medicine, the ACMG’s flagship journal. She is particularly passionate about education and mentorship; as part of the ACMG Education and CME Committee, she founded and co-chaired the mentor and trainee luncheon at the ACMG’s Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting. She recently completed a six-year term on the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Residency Review Committee for Medical Genetics and was president of the program directors' group of the Association of Professors of Human and Medical Genetics (APHMG). Dr. Klugman is also passionate about advocacy for the medical genetics field and has served as the board liaison to ACMG's Advocacy and Government Affairs committee. This followed her 2018 fellowship in Washington, DC with the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology’s Legislative Affairs office.

Recognized as a leading expert in medical genetics, Dr. Klugman is director of the Division of Reproductive and Medical Genetics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center. She is also program director for the Clinical Medical Genetics Residency that spans both the Department of Pediatrics and the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Women's Health at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center.

Dr. Klugman divides her time between clinical practice, teaching, research and administrative duties. She has participated in multiple local and national clinical trials and co-authored 35 peer-reviewed publications. Her research focuses on genetic screening for prenatal diagnosis and cancer risk. Dr. Klugman has spoken extensively at regional and national medical conferences including more than 70 invited presentations in the last 10 years. She is a reviewer for several journals and is currently co-investigator on three grants.

In 2003 the ABMS (American Board of Medical Specialties) began to develop an expanded four part Maintenance of Certification plan that each member Board would be required to have in place by 2009. This four part MOC plan is uniform across Boards in concept, but can vary somewhat in the specifics. The long term plan for the Continuing Certification Program (CCP formerly MOC) committee is to provide ongoing guidance to the ABMGG and the ACMG in their efforts to develop the practical application of these plans. The vision for this joint committee is to use the experience and perspective of each committee member on questions of timing, scope of activities, as well as to guide the development practice improvement modules.
