Assembly of Delegates

Members & Publications

Back in person, this year the AAPM&R Board of Governors will host the 2022 Critical PM&R Dialogues: Assembly of Delegates Meeting at the 2022 AAPM&R Annual Assembly on Wednesday, October 19, 2022 from 12pm to 4pm EST.

The purpose of this annual meeting is to discuss and provide input on a critical topic to the AAPM&R and the specialty of PM&R. The critical topics designated by the Board of Governors this year will be in two areas:

  1. Discussion around whether state-by-state political and/or public health decisions should impact AAPM&R’s Annual Assembly site selections (which are chosen years in advance)
  2. Imagining an evolving Annual Assembly in a post-virtual world.

Member Communities are invited to attend by sending a delegate. Member Community Chairs have been given information on identifying a delegate from their member community to participate in this event.  The delegates will be asked to share their perspective. In accordance with the AAPM&R Principles of Inclusion and Engagement, the delegates will serve as a diverse focus group to ensure that a variety of membership perspectives are provided.
