Do you know that the ISMA’s public policies and legislative agenda are driven by resolutions submitted by its members? If you have something on your mind that is important to you and the practice of medicine, now is the time to put those thoughts into a resolution and submit it for the 2013 House of Delegates meeting in September.
|Save these dates!
Plan to attend the ISMA annual convention, Sept. 20-22 at the JW Marriott Downtown. Registration begins in July. For details, go to the ISMA convention page.
But don’t wait! Resolutions are due Monday, July 22.
If you need help, House Speaker John Wernert, M.D., and Vice Speaker Heidi Dunniway, M.D., provide the “how to” of crafting a resolution in a short video. Find it on the ISMA website.
If you need additional assistance, call the ISMA at (317) 261-2060 or (800) 257-4762.
