Previous Business: July 2020 Board of Trustees Meeting

The TMA Board of Trustees held its annual meeting on July 25 in Franklin, Tennessee, via video conferencing for all but approximately 40 ex-officio delegates and staff in attendance. The meeting provided physicians across the state an opportunity to gather as a professional group to consider the policies that affect the practice of medicine and the delivery of patient care in both Tennessee and the United States.  

This July gathering was recorded as an “in person” meeting, although delegates and the membership at large were encouraged to participate remotely due to continued COVID-19 safety precautions. Speaker Capparelli and Vice-Speaker Leonard led our distinguished delegates through an abbreviated agenda, with required reports delivered to the House of Delegates and officer transitions occurring immediately following the House sessions.

Tabled resolutions for debate and action will be addressed at the next House of Delegates meeting.

We appreciate your understanding and support of the Association during these unprecedented times. Together, we are endeavoring to do the work of the membership and respect the decorum of our House of Delegates. Please watch your emails and check this web page for updates.
