What is a Delegate and Why Should IMA Members Participate?
The House of Delegates (HOD) is an annual meeting of physician members from around the state and is the official policy making body of the IMA. Participating physician members of the HOD, referred to as delegates, are made up of local and specialty society members. Similar to how the Idaho legislature considers bills at the state house each year, delegates consider resolutions that propose IMA policy or directives. Delegates may present, provide testimony, and vote on resolutions and other matters discussed during HOD. IMA is a physician driven organization. Being a delegate allows Idaho physicians to have their voices heard and direct IMA to work on your behalf at the Idaho Legislature and with other regulatory agencies.
