NLMA 2022 Annual General Meeting


The 2022 Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday, June 18, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. NT. The AGM is open to all members and is being offered as a hybrid meeting this year, with the option to join in person at the Faculty of Medicine in the Dr. Richard Fagan Theatre (1m101) at the Health Sciences Centre in St. John’s or virtually via Zoom. The annual meeting is an opportunity to discuss the business of the NLMA and debate resolutions.



Section Meetings

Ahead of the AGM, both the Family Medicine Section (May 25 at 7:00 p.m. NT) and the Section of FFS Consultants (June 13 at 5:30 p.m. NT) will hold meetings via Zoom. Members can register for these meetings using the AGM registration form.




Members can register by clicking here: NLMA AGM 2022.


Registration will close at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, June 10. To limit emails for those who will not be joining the virtual AGM, only registered delegates will receive relevant notifications and the link to participate.




Members may submit resolutions by end of day Friday, June 10, for debate during the AGM Business Session. Given the hybrid format, resolutions will only be accepted in advance of the AGM. Movers and seconders of resolutions must attend the AGM either in person or virtually.


Resolutions can be submitted using the Resolutions Submission Form.



President’s Dinner

Following the Business Session, we will hold our annual President’s Dinner at The Rooms to install incoming NLMA President Dr. Kris Luscombe. The dinner will also feature presentations of the NLMA and CMA Honorary Life Awards. This year, the NLMA is honouring the late Dr. Padmavathy Guntamukkala, the late Dr. David Lacey, and Dr. Neil Harvey. CMA Honorary Life Awards will be presented to Dr. Grenfell Adams and Dr. Robert Young. Cocktails begin at 7:00 p.m. with dinner to follow.
