Governance Reform Technical Advisory Committee (GTAC)

The California Medical Association (CMA) is currently seeking physician members to serve on a new iteration of its Governance Reform Technical Advisory Committee (GTAC). CMA's committees, councils and Technical Advisory Committees (TACs) provide key input to the Board of Trustees to guide the Association as it sets new policies. Recommendations affecting the Bylaws of the Association would be subject to the action of the House of Delegates. 

The TAC will be charged with identifying and developing proposals to improve various attributes of CMA’s governance structure.

The TAC will be composed of:

  • Members appointed by the CMA Board Chairs
  • At-large members selected through this application process

It is estimated that the TAC will require both face-to-face meetings as well as virtual (Zoom) meetings, and will meet likely several times in 2022, and beyond into 2023. In addition, there is an expectation that the physician members of the TAC will prepare for each meeting by reading assigned reading material, participate in all TAC discussions (including e-mail discussions), and actively engage in TAC activities. 

Selection Criteria

It would be preferable that candidates interested in serving on the TAC have experience and/or familiarity with CMA’s (or another organized medicine organization's) governance mechanisms, policy-making apparatuses and member engagement programs. Ideal candidates are able to effectively interface with an array of stakeholders and have an appreciation for the myriad needs of CMA’s diverse membership.


Every nomination must include:

  • Completed nomination form
  • Brief CV (less than five pages)


Applications or nominations must be submitted no later than 11:59 p.m. on March 18, 2022. The CMA Committee on Nominations will present its recommendations to the CMA Board of Trustees at its meeting on April 18, 2022, and appointments will be announced shortly thereafter.
