Area(s) of Interest: Physician Leadership
The California Medical Association (CMA) is seeking nominations for physicians to serve as at-large delegates and alternates to the American Medical Association (AMA) House of Delegates. Current delegates who are eligible for reappointment must submit an application for the 2019 - 2020 term. They will not be reappointed if a form is not submitted.
We are seeking physicians who are active CMA members and able to serve as delegates or alternates twice a year during the annual (June) and interim (November) meetings of the AMA House of Delegates for a two-year term. Service on the delegation entails both a commitment of time and a commitment to advocate for CMA’s interests, as well as a willingness to meet the basic responsibilities of the role set forth by AMA in its “Delegate Role and Responsibilities.” Applicant/nominee must be a member of both CMA and AMA.
Please submit nominations using the form on the CMA website (must be logged in). The deadline for consideration is 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, March 7, 2019. The CMA Committee on Nominations will present its recommendations to the Board of Trustees at its meeting on April 25, 2019, and appointments will be announced shortly thereafter.
