First Electronic Election Results are Final

[MMA News Now, Aug. 28, 2014] In the first-ever electronic election for the MMA, members have elected the 2014-2015 president-elect, plus three new board members, and AMA delegates and alternates.

Last fall, the House of Delegates voted to establish member-wide electronic elections in order to allow all members the opportunity to vote. Nominations came in from component medical societies, specialty societies and individual members. These choices were vetted by the MMA Nominating Committee.

Ballots were mailed in late July to all members with email addresses on file with the MMA. Members had until Aug. 22 to vote.  A total of 486 members voted, which is 5.6 percent of eligible voters.

The following members were voted into office:

President-elect - Dave Thorson, M.D.
North Central Trustee District board member– Marilyn Peitso, M.D.
At-large board positions – Edwin Bogonko, M.D., and Doug Wood, M.D.
AMA delegates – David Estrin, M.D., and Benjamin Whitten, M.D.

AMA alternate delegates  – David Luehr, M.D., Will Nicholson, M.D., and Cindy Firkins Smith, M.D.
