HOD Coordination Committee
About the Committee
HCC supports the MSS Delegate and Alternate Delegate, as well as student members of their state delegations, in forming a common and well-informed position on resolutions and reports presented to the AMA House of Delegates. The committee is also responsible for coordinating student testimony for HOD reference committees for all student-authored resolutions.
In addition to its duties pertaining to business in the AMA House of Delegates, HCC works to improve the quality of resolutions submitted for consideration by the MSS Assembly. Through the preparation of informational resources and through direct work with resolution authors, HCC ensures that MSS resolutions call for feasible policy, are thoroughly researched, and are well-written.
