Pursuant to the action of the American Medical Association (AMA) Board of Trustees (BOT) on August 30, 2020, this notice will serve as the official call to convene a Special Meeting of the AMA House of Delegates (HOD) on November 13-17, 2020. The purpose of this meeting as defined by the request of the BOT is to conduct priority and urgent business of the Association. This Special Meeting will be convened on a virtual platform with the Opening Session to commence at 7 pm CT, Friday, Nov. 13.

Materials presented at the Special Meeting are generated by AMA delegates/delegations, the AMA Board of Trustees, AMA Councils and AMA Sections.

*DISCLAIMER: Readers of this material are reminded that it refers only to items to be considered by the House. No action has been taken on anything herein contained and it is informational only. Only those items that have been acted upon by the House can be considered official.

Online forums: Reports/resolutions and testimony

Members are urged to post comments regarding all items of business in the online forums. Forum comments will be reviewed by the reference committees, and comments will be given the same weight as testimony provided in the virtual hearings on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 14-15. Members of the House are accustomed to providing live testimony in reference committees, but the online hearings will necessarily require brevity given the limited time and technology.

The forums are organized by reference committee, with reports and resolutions in separate folders. Along with testimony on the substance of a proposal, comments on the perceived urgency and priority of an item are also encouraged.
