The California Medical Association's (CMA) House of Delegates (HOD) consists of nearly 500 delegates elected by members of 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 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.
