 Leadership Opportunities at WCMS – We’re Looking for You!
WCMS Delegate or Alternate to the House of Delegates
The House of Delegates (HOD) 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. Each year, physician members from across the state submit resolutions for review and consideration. County medical societies are allocated a set number of delegates and alternate voting slots determined by annual membership numbers. Delegates are invited, but not required, to submit resolutions.
Executive Council
The Executive Council is the voting body that supervises the function and activities of WCMS. Council members determine annual events, legislative priorities, and community outreach directives. The Executive Council meets the first Thursday of each month and breaks June-August
and December.
