Reappointment and Re-privileging - Dates

How are reappointment/re-privileging dates determined ?    

Any examples are for illustrative purposes only.

Due Dates:
Reappointment/re-privileging is due no later than two years from the same date from the previous appointment or reappointment. For example, if the reappointment period is  July 15, 2017 through July 14, 2019, the reappointment date would be July 15, 2019. 

Governing Body Approval Dates:
The reappointment/re-privileging dates do not need to match the governing body approval dates. The governing body should be approving effective periods in advance of the expiration date. For example, in May, the board would approve all June reappointment/re privileging effective periods and in June the board would be approving all July reappointment/re-privileging effective periods. It would not be necessary to keep changing the effective period to match the date the board actually met and approved the appointment/reappointment or privileges.
