The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) has grown and evolved considerably since its foundation in 1963 as an academic professional society. It currently has >11 000 members, both domestic and international, drawn from the breadth of infectious diseases practice, from basic research to public health. Governance of the Society has not evolved as rapidly, and, in the last few years, it was increasingly evident to many members that the IDSA leadership was less representative of the membership than it ought to be. As a result of a rigorous review of its governance structure, the Society has committed to a policy of inclusion, diversity, access, and equity. It has also reformed the methods by which future IDSA leaders are identified and given roles. These changes should increase the opportunities for all members of the Society to participate in its volunteer leadership.
