House of Delegates
House of Delegates

The MOA House of Delegates is the legislative and policy-making body of the association. The House is responsible for election of officers and directors, election of AOA delegates and alternates, bylaws amendments, component societies and various policies and positions.

The House of Delegates meets annually, conducting business at the Spring Scientific Convention. The body of delegates is comprised of physician leaders who are active in their district or county osteopathic component society and are elected by their peers for one-year terms. The number of delegates per society is determined by association membership in the respective area. The House of Delegates receives reports from the officers committees, approves the budget and additional matters brought to the body for consideration.
