Due to the ongoing public health emergency, the California Medical Association’s (CMA's) 150th meeting of the House of Delegates (HOD) convened on Saturday, October 23, 2021, as a virtual event.
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 Racism and Other Barriers to Health Equity and the Corporatization of Health Care.
The meeting included online discussion forums, a virtual townhall and a live seven-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.
