How to Get Involved

Become a Member of the Delegate Council

All KCMS members are welcome to serve on our Delegate Council. Our Delegates advocate for policy change and identify and craft resolutions/bills to improve the practice of medicine and health care for all.

The KCMS Delegate Council pursues legislative efforts with the help of our dedicated lobbyist, James Paribello. These efforts may be unique to our King County Region, but often the initiatives have potential statewide and federal impacts.

Additionally, KCMS Delegates who are also members of the Washington State Medical Association (WSMA) can serve as representatives in the WSMA House of Delegates (HOD). As the largest voting bloc in the WSMA HOD, our Delegates have a powerful voice in setting legislative priorities and policies affecting organized medicine across WA state. 

Check out the Delegate page or contact Program Manager, Shurlon Brathwaite at sbrath@kcmsociety.org.
