2023 Interim Meeting of the HOD: Sept. 20 Speakers' Update


As we approach the 2023 AMA Interim House of Delegates and sections meeting, your speakers have various updates. There are a number of details provided including important new for I-23 items. Please review carefully and as always if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected].

Volunteers are still urgently needed to serve on House committees, including reference committees and rules and credentials or as tellers. Please submit your application ASAP to be considered. The application form (PDF) should be emailed to [email protected].

Although you may have submitted a volunteer form for prior meetings, we ask that you please submit a new form if you would like to be considered for service at I-23. Preference will be given to volunteers who have not served at a recent meeting. All reference committee volunteers must confirm their availability to meet virtually on the weekend prior to the opening session of the House to develop a preliminary document based on the online forum testimony. Those interested in serving as chair of a committee should indicate their desire to do so on the form.

All delegations are urged to submit resolutions that they currently have on hand as soon as possible! All submissions must be correctly formatted prior to the submission deadline, i.e., no edits/corrections will be accepted after the new deadlines. A resolution template with instructions is provided for your use. The HOD office will not edit your submissions for you.

Dates to keep in mind

  • Sept. 27, 2023, 5 p.m. Central: Resolutions from meetings* held prior to Sept. 1, 2023
  • Oct. 11, 2023, 5 p.m. Central: Resolutions from meetings* held Sept. 1–Oct. 6, 2023

Per bylaw (PDF), exempted resolutions may be submitted within seven days of the conclusion of meetings* held within the five-week period preceding the commencement of the HOD meeting.

These new deadlines will be strictly followed. Excluding resolutions directly transmitted from the sections, any resolution received after these deadlines will be considered late.

We anticipate that the entire handbook will be posted online on or about Oct. 13. There will be no supplement. This entire handbook will be available on the online forum during its 14-day window.

As per policy G-610.020, candidates may announce their intention to run via submission of candidate cards to the HOD office which are then subsequently posted on the HOD elections page. Your speakers have determined that the current official candidate notification* will be attached to their meeting updates to the House.

*Note: Changed on this notification, one candidate has withdrawn from the CSAPH election.
