House of Delegates Overview
Posted by Paul on 11/11/2013 3:29:00 PM
The end of last week was busy and significant on many levels. Thursday was the final MDA Board meeting with Dr Lynne Barbour at the helm. There were many issues to cover plus a final board review of all resolutions going to the MDA House of Delegates.
Friday is heavy lifting day at the House of Delegates with regional caucus meetings over breakfast, then the first meeting of the House, then reference committee meetings, and finally the annual award banquet.
Saturday, the House finishes its business by voting on the resolutions that will direct much of the Board and staff's energy this next year. New officers are installed and the new president, Dr Merle Nunemaker leads his first board meeting.
There are a lot of moving parts but this process is so important. Its where your profession and its leaders chart our course for the future. Beyond the business, it's wonderful to see old friends and families and new members engage together both professionally and socially.
The scene is a photo taking bonanza with guest speakers, honorees, and comings and goings at every turn. The next few post will give you a visual taste. I encourage you to ask your local leaders for their impressions of the week and the work ahead. We are all in it together!
