SCCT passes first hurdle in pursuit of AMA HOD membership

SCCT has passed the first and most significant step in the AMA House of Delegates (HOD) membership application process. The AMA Specialty and Service Society (SSS) Rules Committee recommendation affirms that SCCT has met the requirement of at least 100 AMA members and that twenty percent (20%) of its physician members who are eligible for AMA membership are members of the AMA.

The Rules Committee recommendation will now be presented to the AMA Board of Trustees (BOT) for consideration.  If approved by the AMA BOT, the full AMA HOD will vote in June on the SCCT application.

The SCCT leadership is grateful to those members who joined the AMA to support this effort.  We will continue to provide updates as the application process.
