In accordance with its By-law, the CMPA holds an annual meeting, normally in conjunction with the Canadian Medical Association's annual meeting, making it possible for members to attend both events. Attendance at the CMPA Annual Meeting is generally restricted to members and invited guests.
During the annual meeting, a review of the previous year's performance and the audited financial statements are presented; the results of the council election and the aggregate fee requirement for the forthcoming year are announced; any proposed changes to the CMPA's By-law are discussed and ratified; and questions or concerns from members regarding the Association's business are addressed.
The meeting is followed by an information session on a policy matter or topic of interest to physicians and stakeholders.
