TMA Councils and Committees


TO: County Medical Society Delegates, Presidents, Presidents-Elect, and Secretaries


Dear Doctor:


One of the most important responsibilities of the incoming president of the Texas Medical Association is the selection of physicians to serve on TMA’s councils and committees.  Our association depends on the active participation of those who serve on these components that initiate our policies and programs.

I am asking you, as a leader in your county society, to assist me by recommending physicians you believe are qualified and interested in serving.  A list of council and committee charges is enclosed.

Specifically, I hope you will take the time to identify physicians who have expertise in the areas addressed by TMA councils and committees, as well as physicians whom you believe have leadership qualities and should be given opportunities to develop that potential.  Your recommendations will be of great value to me, and I will give every recommendation careful review and consideration.

A recommendation form has been enclosed.  Please use as many forms as necessary to designate additional nominations.  If you personally are not currently serving on a TMA council or committee and would like to do so, please take this opportunity to indicate your own interest.

TMA Bylaws provide that a physician may serve as a member of only one board, council or committee at a time.


I would appreciate receiving your recommendations no later than February 15, 2018.



Douglas W. Curran, MD
