The House of Delegates (HOD) includes well over 500 voting delegates (and a corresponding number of alternate delegates), all who are members of the AMA and who have been selected by the organization they represent, such as state or territorial medical associations, national medical specialty organizations, professional interest medical associations, the federal services and the AMA’s member sections. Some organizations are also allowed to officially observe the proceedings of the HOD, although they are not able to vote.
The election materials for the current year will be available on the HOD's meeting web page 8 weeks prior to the meeting.
