The District IX Delegation is the body that represents ACCMA within the larger CMA House of Delegates (HOD). The delegation takes positions on CMA policy matters and reviews, comments, and offers amendments on CMA resolutions and reports. This process continues throughout the year leading up to the in-person HOD meeting each October to debate policy related to major issues confronting California physicians. The Delegation typically meets virtually four times per year as well as the in-person HOD meeting. If you are passionate about state and federal policy issues, contact the ACCMA to learn more and express your interest.
The ACCMA District IX Delegation is composed of 46 Delegates, 46 Alternate Delegates, and 3 CMA Board of Trustees. Some members represent ACCMA by serving on a different delegation.
The House of Delegates convenes annually to debate and act on resolutions and reports dealing with myriad medical practice, public health, and CMA governance issues. Policies adopted by the House are implemented by the CMA Board of Trustees, which also deals with the many interim policy issues that arise between annual sessions.
The House of Delegates consists of more than 400 delegates elected by members of component medical societies, specialty societies, CMA sections (Organized Medical Staff Section, Young Physicians Section, Ethnic Medical Organization Section, Medical Student Section, the Resident and Fellows Section) and CMA mode of practice forums. Submitting resolutions to the House of Delegates is the most direct way for members to influence CMA's advocacy agenda.
Are you interested in a mix of local and state issues related to the practice of medicine, are you looking for opportunities to network with other physicians throughout the state, and do you have an interest in exploring a leadership position within ACCMA or CMA?
