WOULD-BE MEDICAL PARLIAMENTARIANS GET SOME GAVEL TRAINING

New TMA House of Delegates Vice Speaker Susan Strate, MD, and five of her colleagues spent the weekend learning the ins and outs of debatable motions, second-order amendments, and calls for the question. Barry Glazer, MD, a certified professional parliamentarian and teacher from Indianapolis, focused on how to preside at meetings using the Sturgis conduct code as the parliamentary authority. In addition to Dr. Strate, his pupils included Drs. Dawn Buckingham and Michelle Berger of Austin, Lisa Erlich and Bill Gilmer of Houston, and Ray Callas of Beaumont.
