Resolutions for 2018 Annual Meeting due Feb 1; Reference Committees set for March 24

The Wisconsin Medical Society’s House of Delegates (HOD) will convene Saturday, April 14, as part of the Society’s 2018 Annual Meeting at the Monona Terrace Convention Center in Madison. All Society members may submit resolutions for consideration by the HOD to help shape Society policy on important medical issues. The deadline is 4:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 1.

More information about the resolution process and guidelines is available in this Medigram article. Resolutions will be debated prior to the HOD via district caucus meetings, which are being scheduled now. Dates and locations will be posted on the Society’s website as they become available.

In addition to the district caucuses, members will be able to weigh in on resolutions through virtual references committees, which will be accessible online beginning Feb. 15, and during reference committees, which are being held at Society headquarters in Madison Saturday, March 24, beginning at 9 a.m. Members also will be able to participate via webinar.

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. All “late resolutions” will be forwarded to the Rules Committee for review. The Rules Committee will make recommendations to the HOD regarding the acceptance of any “late resolutions” at the April 14 opening session.

Submit resolutions for the 2018 House of Delegates to CEO Bud Chumbley, MD, Wisconsin Medical Society, PO Box 1109, Madison, WI 53701 or via e-mail to Noreen Krueger.
