House of Delegates

The House of Delegates is the association's legislative body, responsible for electing officers and determining policies, initiatives and directives.

Who makes up the House of Delegates? 
One delegate is elected from each class of every podiatric medical school. Schools may also elect alternate delegates if they desire. The President from each podiatric medical school's student government also serves as a voting member. 

When does the House meet?
The House meets twice a year, in the winter and summer, to discuss and debate resolutions and determine initiatives.

What is the election process?
Each class of students from every podiatric medical school elects a delegate to the House of Delegates. The House of Delegates elects the APMSA Board of Trustees and liaisons to affiliated organizations. 

What are resolutions?
A resolution is defined as a proposal which directs the APMSA to take a position or an action. A resolution consists of at least one directive (resolved clause) accompanied by supporting statements or facts (whereas clauses). Once a resolution is submitted, it is debated at the House of Delegates. If adopted at the meeting, the resolution becomes APMSA policy. 

Who can submit a resolution?
Any APMSA member may propose a resolution following the requirements outlined in the bylaws.
