The first session of the House of Delegates (HOD) will convene at 8 a.m. on Sunday, October 20, 2019. ASA President Linda J. Mason, M.D., FASA, and President-Elect Mary Dale Peterson, M.D., M.H.A., FASA, will present their remarks. This opening session will also include an ASA Political Action Committee update and the nomination of officers and selected candidate speeches to the HOD.
The second session of the HOD will convene promptly at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, October 23. Delegates are encouraged to arrive early to accommodate the credentialing process. Election of officers will occur at this HOD session. The House will also consider the reports of the four reference committees using formal parliamentary procedure to dispose of the recommendations and any motions, amendments, referrals or other such actions of the House. Delegates should note that much of the business of the House has typically been presented and deliberated upon at the Board of Directors meetings held earlier in the governance year. Those reports and the corresponding actions of the Board are available on the Governance Resources section of the ASA website. Review of those actions following the conclusion of each meeting of the Board of Directors is encouraged for all members of the HOD.
