Call for Delegates 2014, North Carolina Medical Society Annual Meeting and House of Delegates October 24-25, 2014; Grandover Resort, Greensboro, NC

The Durham-Orange County Medical Society (DOCMS) seeks Members to serve as Delegates to the 160th NCMS Annual Meeting and House of Delegates, which is scheduled for October 24-October 25 at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro, NC.

Due to the size of our society, we are permitted to send 9 delegates to represent our local medical community. I would like to encourage you to consider participating and serving on our delegation.

The NCMS House of Delegates, composed largely of delegates from county medical societies, is the legislative and policy-making body of the Society. All NCMS members are encouraged to participate in this democratic forum of discussion among peers from across the state about issues affecting physicians and patients. Resolutions are submitted by county medical societies or individual delegates for consideration during the session. Many health-care related statutes and regulations in effect in our state today have been a direct result of policy decisions made by the NCMS House of Delegates. Participation as a Delegate is an exciting opportunity to have first-hand involvement in these discussions and decisions.

Delegates are asked to serve during the House of Delegates proceedings on Friday, October 24 from 3:00-5:30 pm, and Saturday, October 25, from 10:00 am-1:00 pm. A preparatory meeting will be held for DOCMS Delegates on Wednesday, October 22, 2014, at 6:00 pm at The University Club. Dinner will be served.

To represent the Durham-Orange County Medical Society as a Delegate to the 2014 NCMS Annual Meeting and House of Delegates, please respond to docms@ncmedsoc.org or call Shawn Scott at (919-833-3836).
