2020 House of Delegates ~~ April 24-26, Westchester Marriot, Tarrytown, NY

The Annual Meeting of the MSSNY House of Delegates will take place from Thursday, April 24 through Sunday, April 26 .  The location for the 2020 meeting will be at The Westchester Marriot 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
