The MSSNY House of Delegates is 3 months away.
Your speakers and staff have been hard at work getting the business of the 2023 House of Delegates organized. Here are important reminders to remember as we get closer to the House.
The current list of 2023 credentialed delegates have been posted to the House of Delegates website at https://www.mssny.org/HOD. Delegates are still being accepted and should be submitted to Michael Reyes
The reference committee members have been appointed by the speaker. Once appointed members accept their positions, it will be posted on the HOD (House of Delegates) website. However, delegates may still request to serve on the reference committees as some appointed members may choose to decline the position. Reference committee requests will be accepted until Friday Feb 3rd.
The reference committee hearings will look to be held virtually on the weekend of March 24-26. Actual dates and times are still yet to be determined
Resolutions you or your organization want to be considered at the HOD are due by 5 PM on Wednesday, March 1. This is a firm deadline and items of business received after that day and time will be forwarded to the Rules & Credentials Committee for consideration and recommendation.
We ask that resolutions be properly formatted, well thought out and constructed, and any research to document the author’s resolved clause is included. This is a substantial help to reference committee staff. Authors should include policy citations from MSSNY’s position statements but remember – resolutions that repeat existing policy will likely wind up on the reaffirmation calendar! Delegates can find helpful information on how to properly construct and format resolutions on www.mssny.org/HOD
Send your resolutions to Michael Bartlett. Early submissions are very much appreciated.
Information regarding hotel reservations and the link to access rooms is not yet available. We will ensure that you have that information as soon as it is available so you can reserve a hotel room.
Continuing Medical Education
Continuing Medical Education courses are being developed for Friday, April 21 and will begin early in the day, continue until at least noon and then MLMIC will be offering programs of their own in the afternoon. All CME (Continuing Medical Education) will be conducted virtually, however, for those who wish, the opportunity to view on a big screen at the hotel will be available. CME information will be posted on the HOD website once available
Physician Advocacy Day
Physician Advocacy Day is on March 14. This is your opportunity to hear from your legislators and interact with them. It will start at 8 AM and registration is required for the event.

All our best,
