Committee member expectations

  • Support the mission of the organization
  • Participate in committee meetings (frequency varies by committee)
  • Keep committee materials and conversations confidential
  • Respond timely to organizational requests

  • Recuse oneself when a potential conflict of interest is identified.

Any member of the Medical Society of the State of New York is eligible for membership on the committees and commissions of the Council; however, committee participation is limited, and not all volunteers will be able to serve on a committee simultaneously. 

Members may make recommendations for committee appointments, with any member able to self-nominate for a committee appointment. To nominate yourself or another member for a committee appointment, complete the Committee Recommendation Form and submit it to the Office of the President at [email protected].

The primary committee selection process takes place in the spring before the MSSNY House of Delegates, but committee appointments occur throughout the year. Questions about each committee’s selection process or duties may be directed to [email protected].
