The 160th Annual Convention of the Missouri State Medical Association takes place March 23-25, 2018 at the St. Louis Renaissance Airport Hotel. MSMA has set the deadline for submitting resolutions for inclusion in convention materials as Tuesday, February 6, 2018 at 5:00 p.m.
Resolutions to positively influence the practice of medicine are an important part of organized medicine. We encourage all members of SLMMS, whether you are a delegate to the convention or not, to bring forward topics for resolutions. In consideration of the early convention dates and resolution deadlines, the SLMMS Political Advocacy Committee has established the following schedule.
For a resolution to be introduced and sponsored by SLMMS, it must be presented and reviewed twice by our body of delegates. The first opportunity will be at the SLMMS Delegates’ Briefing Session on Thursday, December 14, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. in the First Floor Conference Room at the SLMMS office at 680 Craig Road in Creve Coeur. All District 3 delegates will receive a mailing announcing this meeting, but all SLMMS members are invited to attend.
Resolutions accepted at that meeting will go forward for a second review to be held in conjunction with the monthly SLMMS Council meeting on Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. at the SLMMS office. Resolutions receiving final approval at this meeting will be submitted as sponsored by SLMMS.
If you are researching or planning a resolution, even if it’s still in the conceptual stage, please notify the SLMMS office for it to be included in the meeting agenda. It is preferred, but not required, that the author attend both meetings to present the resolution.
