A Message from SMRA's Elections Chair

Upcoming Officer Elections ...

Hey all you members. It’s that time of year again - time to elect our leaders for the upcoming year. If you’re already involved and want to keep it that way, or if you’ve got a hankering to serve more and be more involved, here’s your chance.

Elections of SMRA officers will be held at the monthly General Membership meeting on December 2, 2006. The offices include President, Vice President, Recording Secretary, Corresponding Secretary, and Treasurer. Nominations for officers will be accepted at the monthly General Membership meeting on October 7, 2006 and again at the November 4, 2006 meeting. Nominations may also be submitted to the Elections Chair at any time once the floor has been opened to nominiations at the October monthly meeting. After the November meeting, the floor will be closed to nominations and only write-in nominations will be accepted thereafter.

Nominated candidates must be in good standing and have been a member of SMRA for three months. Your vote may be cast via ground mail per ballots that will be sent to members or may be cast at the December monthly meeting.

For officer responsibilities and election regulations, refer to our By-Laws and Guidelines to By-Laws.

So saddle up, get involved, and help ensure our growing organization continues to move in the right direction.

Elections Chair

As an LGBTQ+ patient, you should be able to expect the same high-quality care provided to all patients. Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily always prove to be the case. There remains a notoriously significant disparity in healthcare outcomes for LGBTQ+ patients, often related to issues with discrimination among providers.

Even when you find a good physician, this doesn’t mean that everyone interacting with your healthcare information will be as respectful or responsible. It is, therefore, important to be vigilant about how your data is handled. You have a right to privacy just as you have an expectation of fair treatment.
