Dear Colleagues:

The 151st Annual Session of the California Medical Association (CMA) House of Delegates (HOD) will convene October 22-23, 2022, at the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE. As you plan your participation in the meeting, your Speakers request that you carefully review the following information.

Early Amendments Deadline

The deadline to submit an early amendment is today, Oct. 18, at 11:59 p.m. Click here to submit your amendment. Additional amendments may be offered during the House of Delegates.

New Delegate Orientation Tonight

The New Delegate Orientation (for both delegates and alternates) will be held virtually today, Oct. 18, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Join the Speakers of the House as they review CMA's organizational structure and governance, with emphasis on the HOD: what it is and how it fits in, how it functions, how to participate effectively as an Delegate or Alternate. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions about the process. Register for New Delegate Orientation here.
