SCMA’s House of Delegates (HOD) will convene virtually for its annual meeting on Friday, April 23, 2021 and Sunday, April 25, 2021. The HOD gives physicians from across the state an opportunity to gather as a professional group to present and debate policies that affect the practice of medicine and the delivery of patient care in South Carolina.
Each component medical society is entitled to representation in the House of Delegates and is required by SCMA’s bylaws to select and promptly report the names of delegates to the SCMA Office. If you are interested in participating in the House of Delegates, contact your local county medical society.
Resolution Process Changes
Dear SCMA House of Delegates and Members,
As you are aware, we made the decision to hold the SCMA House of Delegates Virtually this year. There will be challenges with this format, so we are trying to plan ahead to make it as smooth as possible. Listed below are a few changes to make the process for this year’s virtual House of Delegates as efficient and productive as possible. We expect delays due to technology transitions between speakers and the potential for extra resolutions since we were unable to meet last year.
More details about the meeting will be shared soon with a link for Delegates and Alternate Delegates to sign up for the HOD meeting. Please note: everyone must register for the annual meeting in order to serve as a delegate or alternate delegate by clicking on the registration link below.
Please be prepared for the Sunday House of Delegates to go longer than scheduled. We will do our best to get through all business in a timely manner and if all processes above are followed, we should have no problem getting through everything. We recognize that we face some unique challenges because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we appreciate and value your time.
