Submitting Resolutions to the RFS Assembly

We require that you research current AMA and AMA-RFS policy for your resolutions, state whether or not pertinent policy exists and cite this policy in your resolution. You can visit the AMA Policy Finder and then find detailed information on how to write a resolution. For assistance with AMA policy or other aspects of your resolution, contact AMA-RFS staff at (312) 464-2421.

Virtual Reference Committee

At the 2015 Interim meeting, the RFS will continue its Virtual Reference Committee (VRC) to complement its in-person Reference Committee. The VRC is a response to the increase in resolution submissions, and it will enable residents and fellows to access, view and comment (or “testify”) on items of business in advance of the meeting.

All comments will be considered by the Reference Committee, who will write its report based on the totality of testimony presented both virtually and on-site. This report serves as the basis for extraction, discussion, and voting at the RFS Assembly. The Virtual Reference Committee offers two benefits. First, it allows for additional testimony and programming during the Meeting. Second, the VRC gives interested delegates and other RFS members equal opportunity to provide testimony regardless of their ability to attend the meeting.

Comments to the VRC should be prepared as if they are being presented to the Reference Committee in-person and should address the item under consideration and include specific suggestions for changes, if appropriate. Comments should not be directed at previous comments or individuals. Also, since your community username may not necessarily be your full name, please sign all comments with your full name. If you list your position or residency institution, note that you are doing so in an individual capacity. Only list your state or specialty society if you have permission to speak on behalf of that group. The 2015 Annual Meeting Virtual Reference Committee is now open!

Questions, please contact AMA-RFS staff at (312) 464-2421.
