Call for Resolutions
The House of Delegates is the official policy-making body of the Michigan State Medical Society. Resolutions are the vehicles used to debate and determine the policies, priorities, and direction of MSMS. A well-crafted resolution is essential to present the most effective case for those issues that are of importance and concern to you.
Resolutions can be presented for review and submis- sion to the WCMS. Once reviewed, the resolutions will be presented to MSMS by the voting delegates on behalf of WCMS delegation. You may also submit a resolution as an individual directly to the MSMS online. In order to be considered as regular business of the House of Delegates, resolutions must be submitted to WCMS by 5:00 p.m. on February 1, 2018. Once received, resolutions are reviewed by the WCMS Legislative Committee for submis- sion to MSMS on March 1, 2018.
