A Consistent Influence

For more than 100 years, the LACMA has been a
constant voice for the local medical community

House of Delegates

The California Medical Association's (CMA) House of Delegates (HOD) consists of over 550 delegates elected by component medical societies, specialty societies, and CMA sections and forums, representing virtually every mode of practice and region of the state.

CMA's House of Delegates convenes annually to debate on the most important issues affecting members, the Association, and the practice of medicine. Actionable reports on those topics are presented and debated, and educational speakers are often invited to provide additional insight. The House also addresses any other issues referred to it by the Board of Trustees, including any changes to the bylaws matters regarding charters, etc. During the Annual Session, the House elects officers, honors members for their service, and receives important updates about the activities of the Association in the past year.

While only Delegates can address the House during Annual Session, any CMA member may present testimony (i.e. speak for or against a recommendation) during the online testimony period of the Major Issues. This is similar to how Members can submit written testimony on submitted resolutions that are accessible via their account dashboard on the CMA website.

While the current governmental landscape in regards to healthcare can be tedious to navigate, LACMA and California Medical Association offer a platform to ensure your voice is heard through the House of Delegates.

The CMA House of Delegates meets annually to establish broad policy on important issues dealing with policy matters concerning medical practice, public health and CMA governance.

LACMA is allotted a specific number of delegates to participate in CMA’s House of Delegates and represent their constituents by:

  • Attending and actively participating in delegation caucus meetings and all sessions of the House.
  • Communicate CMA policy, information, activities and programs to constituents
  • Advocate constituent views within the House
  • Report highlights of the House of Delegates meetings to constituents
  • Participate in leadership development opportunities

LACMA is always seeking interested physician members who would like to serve on LACMA’s delegation to the CMA House of Delegates.

If anyone has any questions regarding the positions or the election process, please contact Lisa Le at (213) 226-0304 or at lisa@lacmanet.org.
