The Representative Assembly

The role of the Representative Assembly is that of an influential body that represents members' interests, provides a forum for members to come together to discuss issues of importance to the profession, and offers guidance to the Board. It includes a diverse representation of family physicians and specialists, those practicing in rural and urban communities, and those in all stages of their medical careers. The Representative Assembly is comprised of 108 voting members, some of whom are elected by the membership and others who are appointed by a Section or representative organization.
