To help shape Society policy on important medical issues, all Society members may submit resolutions for consideration by the HOD during the Annual meeting, which is April 2-3 in Madison. Any resolution received after the Feb. 1 deadline will be considered a “late resolution,” unless it is presented by the Board of Directors, the Speaker, Vice Speaker, constitutional officer or by a council or committee of the Society or the HOD.
