In light of the ongoing impact of COVID-19, the Pennsylvania Medical Society’s Board of Trustees made the difficult decision to cancel the face-to-face meeting of the 2020 House of Delegates in Hershey. Plans for an alternative remote meeting format are tentatively targeted for the same weekend of October 24-25, 2020.  Details are still being developed using possible virtual platforms with helpful input from a Speakers’ Advisory Panel.  Click Here to Read More

As you might have noticed, the Speakers' request for resolution submission for the 2019 House of Delegates was earlier than in years past. One of the main reasons for this is that PAMED’s senior team, directors, and staff spend a considerable amount of time researching the background for each resolution. In 2018, 65 resolutions were researched. Given the amount of resolutions and background information, it is also important to provide leadership, reference committee participants, and delegates adequate time to read and inform themselves about the issues prior to voting on them. The background will be posted as it becomes available with the goal of having the bulk of the information online by Thurs., Sept. 26 (30 days prior to the opening session of the House of Delegates and before the ORB review on October 9th).
