House of Delegates



The AMA Sections are interest- and demographic-based member groups that offer you the opportunity to discuss policy proposals, increase your knowledge and skills at education sessions and network with peers with similar interests or backgrounds.

The 2020 AMA Section Meetings will be held virtually on Nov. 6-8 & 13. For purposes of conducting Section Meetings, Sections may treat the Special Meeting of the House of Delegates to be held on Nov. 13-17, 2020, as if it was an Interim Meeting of the House of Delegates.



AMA councils have a continuing duty to participate and submit recommendations to the HOD on matters relating to specific areas of responsibility. Councils also provide opportunities for members to develop leadership skills and advocate for patients and the profession.
