What is the House of Delegates? Is it the same as Annual Meeting?

MSV’s House of Delegates is where policy decisions are made, which serve as the foundation for MSV’s advocacy work. MSV’s House of Delegates occurs during MSV’s Annual Meeting.

Who can serve as a delegate?

Active MSV members can apply to be a delegate. Delegates are selected to represent local medical societies, specialty societies, MSV district, academic medical centers, or hospitals. To be considered to be a delegate, you must first register for MSV’s Annual Meeting.

What do delegates do?

Delegates discuss and vote on issues brought forward by resolutions. Delegates should review resolutions and discuss with the physicians they are representing.

What are resolutions and when are they due?

Resolutions craft MSV’s policy and position on a particular issue. This guides what actions the Society can take in the future. All MSV policies can be found in the MSV Policy Compendium, which is updated annually.

Resolutions are due September 5th. Any MSV member may submit a resolution and should plan to be present on Friday to present their idea. Resolutions may be submitted at www.msv.org/hodresolutions.
