Submit Your Resolution to ISMS by September 27 for Consideration at Next Quarterly Board Meeting
Posted on: 6/28/2019

ANY ISMS member can submit a resolution

As part of a three-year pilot program, ISMS recently began accepting resolutions year-round. This new process allows ISMS to react swiftly to emerging practice challenges.

If you want your resolution to be considered in time for the next quarterly ISMS Board meeting, which will take place in October, please submit your resolution by Friday, Sept. 27, 2019

What is a resolution?

A resolution is a written proposal calling for an ISMS policy change, or for ISMS to take specific actions, such as supporting legislation or introducing a resolution on the national stage via the American Medical Association.

What’s the process?

  1. Introduce your resolution by email. If you aren’t sure what to do, we are here to help! Send us an email or access our Guide to Developing Resolutions for help with composing a resolution.
  2. Once your resolution is received, the ISMS Board Chair assigns it to an ISMS council for review/recommendation.
  3. ISMS members are surveyed for feedback on your resolution. The ISMS council then reviews the resolution, inviting the author to provide input, and develops a recommendation for the ISMS Board.
  4. The ISMS Board considers and acts upon the council’s recommendation.
  5. The Board’s action is then reviewed by ISMS membership at the ISMS Annual Meeting.

Members can view resolutions and related actions any time by visiting our Resolution Tracking webpage. This page is updated regularly as actions are taken and new resolutions are submitted.
