Annual Meeting

Business of the AMA House of Delegates Annual Meeting

COVID-19 statement

At this time the AMA Annual Meeting is still set to take place, but the Board of Trustees and senior management are monitoring the situation and developments and will take necessary actions, and keep the House, Sections and Federation apprised.

The AMA continues to work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local health departments to monitor and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. The AMA will take appropriate precautionary measures to support the health and safety of attendees at the 2020 Annual Meeting. As this is an evolving situation, we will update this page as needed.

Resolution dates

Per AMA Bylaws, “on-time” resolutions are those that are received by close of business on May 7. In order to accommodate processing deadlines, only those resolutions that are received by Wednesday, April 29, will appear in the initial Handbook. Resolutions received after that date will be included in the Handbook Addendum or distributed onsite as necessary.

These organizations are allowed seven days after their adjournment to submit resolutions, except that such resolutions must be received by noon, Friday, June 5. Access reports and resolutions considered by the House as well as reference committee reports and final actions—as they become available.
