OMA Executive Resigns
Feb.7 - After careful consideration of the recent Special Council voting results, the OMA President and Executive have since decided to resign their positions (Feb.6). In doing so, the hope is to reunify doctors and refocus a strong front against the gov't. However, those who are resigning from the Executive and still in the middle of their 2yr term will remain on the OMA Board of Directors. Any Board vacancies will be voted on by Council. From this slate of Board Directors, a new Executive will be nominated and elected during the usual Spring OMA Council Meeting on the weekend of May 6-7, 2017. Please refer to the OMA Bylaws for more details. Until then, the OMA Board at large will be in a position of power and decision making. OMA Press Release; OMA Membership Update (gated).
