How ArMA Works: ArMA Structure and Governance
The Arizona Medical Association House of Delegates (HOD) constitutes the voting body of the association and is composed of representatives from county medical societies, direct members, medical students and specialty and subspecialty societies. The HOD meets annually, currently at the beginning of June.
The House elects all officers and directors of the association. The president, immediate past president and outgoing past president assume their offices in the year next following their terms as president-elect, president, and immediate and past president. Members of the association who are officers or trustees of the American Medical Association, the editor-in-chief, and the dean of the University of Arizona College of Medicine shall automatically be members of the board, without election. The House votes on all memorials and resolutions presented to it; instructs the board on its wishes respecting the operations of the association; when necessary, amends the articles and bylaws; and holds all powers and duties not otherwise specifically delegated.
Resolutions may be proposed by the Board, any member of the House, any county society, any committee or section of the Association, the Resolutions Committee, or by any ArMA member or ArMA constituency. All resolutions should be accompanied by a fiscal note where appropriate.
