In keeping with the defined purpose of this special meeting, all delegates and delegations are strongly encouraged to submit only priority resolutions.
- Review the Prioritization Matrix (PDF) for what is considered a top priority resolution, high priority resolution, medium priority resolution, low priority resolution and not a priority resolution.
- The Prioritization Process (PDF) document details the review process of resolutions by the Resolutions Committee (RC).
Access reports and resolutions considered by the House of Delegates as well as reference committee reports and final actions—as they become available.
Materials presented at the special meeting are generated by AMA delegates/delegations, the Board of Trustees, councils and sections.
The online forums will open in late September for comment on all submitted resolutions and reports. Members are encouraged to use the online forums to facilitate live deliberations. There is no limit on debate via the online forums, however, there will be a limit at the live virtual hearing.
To encourage use of the online forums, reference committees will be instructed to give equal weight to testimony presented in the online forums to that presented at the live hearings.
