About the House of Delegates
The ArMA House of Delegates is our premier policy-making event, when the approximately 100 voting members of the ArMA House of Delegates gather to debate resolutions and determine policy for the association, elect officers & directors, and network with colleagues. All members are welcome to attend the ArMA House of Delegates to network and learn more about the association.
The House of Delegates is comprised of elected delegates from each county medical society, qualified state specialty societies, members of the ArMA Board of Directors, and other designated positions. There are two resident delegates and two student delegates.
All business of the House is conducted according to parliamentary procedures as outlined in “Robert’s Rules of Order, Newly Revised.” The speaker of the House serves as parliamentarian. The speaker of the House is Ronnie Dowling, M.D. The vice speaker of the House is Marilyn Laughead, M.D.
Policymaking at the meeting is primarily driven by resolutions. A resolution is a proposal asking the ArMA to take a position or act on an issue. The deadline for submitting resolutions to the 2020 meeting has passed.
