At its meeting last weekend, the KMS House of Delegates voted to change the organization's governance structure. Delegates approved restructuring the Council, with its 37 voting members, into a smaller Board of Trustees with 18 voting members.

Recommendation for the changes originated with the Future Directions Task Force which is halfway through its two-year comprehensive effort to ensure KMS is well-positioned to remain a strong, relevant advocate for physicians well into the future. In the coming year, the Task Force will continue its work and review a number of other important issues including the future of the House of Delegates, structure of KMS membership, cost of membership and KMS' relationship with county medical societies. The final report will be considered at the 2014 Annual Meeting in Kansas City.
