Advocacy

One Industry - One Voice

The LSMS is your leading advocate for the medical profession before the Louisiana Legislature, state agencies, and the Judicial Branch of government. We promote legislation and policies which preserve the rights of physicians to practice medicine, while maintaining high standards of care.

House of Delegates

The House of Delegates (HOD) serves as the legislative and policy-making body of the LSMS and is composed of elected and special delegates and other as provided in the LSMS bylaws. The HOD transacts all business od the Society, elects general officers, adopts an annual budget, and establishes the official policies of the Society.
