Due to the ongoing public health emergency, the California Medical Association’s (CMA's) annual House of Delegates (HOD) held its first ever virtual meeting Saturday, October 24, 2020. The delegates received critical updates and provided feedback on important issues affecting members, the association and the practice of medicine. This year’s major issues were the Future of Medical Practice Post-COVID-19 and Pandemic Response and Preparedness.
The meeting included educational webinars, online discussion forums, a virtual townhall and a live four-hour broadcast from the command center in Sacramento, with hundreds of physician delegates and staff logging in from across the state. Take a peek behind the curtains and see what it took to pull off a virtual meeting of this scope and scale.
The CMA HOD consists of nearly 500 delegates elected by members of component medical societies, specialty societies, and CMA sections and forums, representing virtually every mode of practice and region of the state.
