Per AMA Bylaws, “on-time” resolutions are those that are received by close of business on May 9. In order to accommodate processing deadlines, only those resolutions that are received by Wednesday, May 1, will appear in the initial Handbook. Resolutions received after that date will be included in the Handbook Addendum or distributed onsite as necessary.

AMA bylaws provide an exception for a society whose policymaking body adjourns during the five week period preceding commencement of an HOD meeting (on or after May 4). These organizations are allowed seven days after their adjournment to submit resolutions, except that such resolutions must be received by noon, Friday, June 7.

Access reports and resolutions considered by the House as well as reference committee reports and final actions—as they become available.
