Register today for Reference Committees, Annual Meeting CME

Reference Committee hearings to discuss resolutions and other items of business that will be considered by the Wisconsin Medical Society’s 2018 House of Delegates (HOD) will be held Saturday, March 24 at Society headquarters in Madison.

The Reference Committees will convene at 9 a.m. and will run consecutively. Members who are unable to attend in person may participate and provide live remote testimony via “GoToWebinar.” Advance registration is required, and participants will need both a telephone connection and a device that is able to access the Internet. To register or learn more about this option, click here. Those who plan to participate in person do not need to register, but are asked to RSVP here to ensure an accurate lunch count.

Following the hearings, each Reference Committee will convene in closed session to provide recommendations to the HOD on the items of business before that committee. This format and timeframe is designed to provide members with more time to review Reference Committee reports in advance of the Annual Meeting April 14. Reference Committee reports will be e-mailed to Delegates, Alternate Delegates and Society Officers, and made available to all members on the Society’s website no later than April 2.

Resolutions to be considered are available online through the Society’s Virtual Reference Committees.* More information and instructions are here.
