Lietz works at Mid-Atlantic Emergency Medical Associates in Charlotte and is chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine for Novant Health Matthews Medical Center. He earned his medical degree from Ohio State University and completed internship and residency at Eastern Virginia Medical School.

Each member serves a three-year term.
