The Napa-Solano County Medical Societies and CMA are fighting every day
for your practice and your patients. From fair payment from government and
private insurance, to access to care for the medically underserved, to
professional liability protections under MICRA, we are working hard on your
behalf to make sure the voice of Napa-Solano physicians is clearly heard.
If you are interested in supporting our advocacy activities, the first step is to become a member! Members can participate in a number of different advocacy activities including those listed below.
Giving Voice to the Medical Community
We are the voice of physicians in our community, and we serve as the Association’s liaison to legislators and to governmental
bodies which interact significantly with the delivery of medical care and the
CMA Legislative Advocacy Day
Each spring, the CMA hosts the annual Legislative Leadership Conference in
Sacramento, a stimulating and memorable program in which physicians have the
opportunity to discuss current issues in health care face-to-face with local
elected officials in the Assembly and Senate.
Lunch With Legislators
Physicians interested in being informed of committee meetings to which a
legislator or legislative candidate has been invited.
Political Action Committees
Our political action committees help elect candidates who share our
perspective and who are likely to promote legislative positions supported by the
medical profession when elected. Our effectiveness is dependent on the degree of
support we receive from physicians in the community.
