House of Delegates
The OSMA House of Delegates is the legislative body for governance of the association. The House of Delegates is responsible for deliberating issues presented in the form of resolutions and determining if organizational policy should be established for particular issues. The body also elects the leaders of the organization.
The body is composed of the OSMA Council and officers and elected delegates that represent chartered county medical societies, medical specialty societies, medical students and medical residents and fellows. The House of Delegates meets once annually during the OSMA Annual Meeting.
The OSMA Annual Meeting provides members an opportunity to learn more about priority issues of the OSMA and actively participate in policy discussions of the organization. The House of Delegates considers resolutions that establish guiding policies for the organization.
The OSMA policy compendium is a searchable PDF document of policies adopted from the OSMA House of Delegates from 1929 to date. This document serves as the governing policy for the association.
