Change in AAIM Executive Staff, Effective February 2024


Dear Colleagues:


We write today to share some bittersweet news: after 16 years in the role, AAIM Deputy Chief Executive Officer and EVP Bergitta E. Cotroneo, FACMPE, has announced her resignation, effective February 23, 2024. We congratulate Bergitta on the next step in her career: Chief Operating Officer of the American College of Physicians.


The search for a new executive leader will begin in spring 2024. The AAIM Board of Directors will work with the staff to ensure a smooth transition as well as take this opportunity to explore prospects for the ongoing and future success of the organization.


As always, if you have questions about this news, please contact the AAIM staff at or (703) 341-4540.
