Become a MSMA Delegate
Serving as an MSMA delegate is an excellent opportunity to be directly involved in the work of the Association. The House of Delegates is the policy-making body of the MSMA and also approves appointments to many MSMA committees, establishes special committees, and elects MSMA officers.
The House convenes annually to consider resolutions calling for new MSMA policies, legislative action, and public education initiatives. Resolutions can be proposed by individual delegates, component medical societies and MSMA sections.
Delegates come from all areas of the state and are chosen by component medical societies and sections. If you are interested, contact your local component society leaders.
For more information about the Annual Convention, visit Annual Convention. To find a leader in your component society, contact the MSMA.
American Medical Association
The seat of the American Medical Association policymaking is its House of Delegates, where state, local and specialty society representatives set policy through a consensus-building process. This policy directs the AMA’s work activities and contributes to their long-term vision.
The MSMA is represented by the Missouri Delegation, comprised of physicians, residents, and students. The Delegation works collaboratively with the Heart of America Caucus to prepare for the AMA’s meetings each year. For more information, conact the MSMA.
Be Active in Your Local Component Medical Society
