This is your opportunity to help set the direction of the Society!

Resolutions are now being accepted for consideration by the membership at the 206th Annual Meeting of the Vermont Medical Society, November 1 & 2 at Topnotch in Stowe, Vermont.

Consistent with the Society's by-laws, resolutions are intended to express composite positions of the Society on health matters and are to suggest a significant course of action to be taken by the Society. If adopted by the membership, policy as stated in the resolution will be the policy position of the Vermont Medical Society.
