HOD 2021: Virtual Reference Committees

MAG delegates encouraged to register for HOD & virtual reference committee meetings ASAP

Fellow MAG HOD delegates,

If you have not already done so, please click here to register for the Medical Association of Georgia’s (MAG) House of Delegates (HOD) meeting – which will take place at the Westin Jekyll Island and Jekyll Island Convention Center on Saturday, October 23 and Sunday, October 24.

Please note that the reference committees for this year’s HOD meeting will take place on a virtual basis to enable as many MAG members to participate in our policy-making process as possible.

Click on the following link(s) to register for the applicable reference committee(s)…

Reference Committee C (Legislation), which will begin at 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 17

Reference Committee A (Health Policy), which will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, October 18

Reference Committee C&B (Constitution & Bylaws), which will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 19

Reference Committee F (Finance), which will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 20

Delegates may register for multiple reference committees.

Once you have registered for a reference committee(s), you will receive a confirmation email(s) that contains details on how to participate in the webinar(s).

Your speaker will open this year’s HOD at the beginning of the first reference committee meeting on Sunday, October 17 – so it is essential to have at least 40 delegates register for this meeting to ensure we have a quorum.

A reference committee that will consider any emergency resolutions will meet at the Jekyll Island Convention Center on Saturday, October 23 if necessary.

Please remember that every delegate, alternate delegate, and guest who attends this year’s HOD must be vaccinated for COVID-19. We will also practice social distancing to the greatest extent possible (e.g., six people per table), and we will require that everybody who attends an HOD (or MAG Board) meeting wear a facemask unless they are speaking at a microphone.

Please contact Bethany Sherrer at bsherrer@mag.org with questions related to the reference committees or Mandi Milligan at mmilligan@mag.org with any other questions related to the HOD meeting.
