The Los Angeles County Medical Association is holding its 148th Annual Election this coming June. This year, there is one vacancy for the position of Secretary and three vacancies for Councilor-at-Large on the LACMA Board of Directors. Two candidates have been nominated to fill one Secretary seat and five candidates have been nominated to fill three Councilor-at-Large seats.

Active members of LACMA and CMA have the privilege of voting for their preferred candidates. When reviewing each statement, it is important to remember that the ultimate responsibility of the Councilor-at-Large includes serving as the advisor and advocate for LACMA and its members to the LACMA Board of Directors.

At the end of May, you can expect to receive a voting ballot via email or mail and you will be able to cast your vote for your preferred candidate. Voting will be performed online. Please be sure to keep an eye out for your ballot and submit your vote.
