The Annual Meeting of the MSSNY House of Delegates will take place from Friday, April 21 through Sunday, April 23.  The location for the 2017 meeting will be at The Westchester Marriott in Tarrytown, New York.  The House will convene at 8 AM on Friday and adjourn at approximately noon time on Sunday.

Not enough can be said about the importance of the House of Delegates in expressing freely its ability to represent the members of MSSNY and the physicians of New York State. Policy and organizational direction for the Society are determined by 330 voting delegates to the Annual Meeting of the Medical Society of the State of New York.  It is through this process that the membership governs the policy and administration of the Medical Society.

 Represented at the Annual House of Delegates are sixty county medical societies, New York State medical specialty societies, medical and osteopathic schools, district branches and the special sections of the Medical Society membership (i.e. young physicians, resident physicians, medical students). The elected leadership of MSSNY also attends the House of Delegates as voting members.

 The House of Delegates is the final authority on all activities of the Medical Society of the State of New York.  The Annual meeting provides direction for leadership and staff and determines official positions of the organization and sets its policies.

  The Speaker and Vice Speaker have determined that the deadline for submission of resolutions for consideration at the MSSNY HOD will be Friday, March 17.  This deadline accommodates any issues which may arise from participation in Physician Advocacy in Albany on March 8. Resolutions can be submitted at ANY TIME and for those which do not deal with legislative issues, you are urged to submit by February 17. Anything submitted after close of business on March 17 will be referred to the Committee on Rules and Order of Business which will determine whether it is be included in the business of the House.  Please plan your county and district branch meetings to accommodate this deadline.   You are strongly urged to research resolutions prior to submission.  MSSNY’s Position Statements can be found at www.mssnypositionstatements.org.  Once approved, the updated  Legislative Agenda will also be on our website.  Those resolutions which are not substantively different from existing policy or initiatives will be recommended for reaffirmation. All Resoultions should be submitted to Laurie Mayer at lmayer@mssny.org
