Dr KK Aggarwal
National President IMA
The Central Working Committee (CWC) of IMA is meeting today at Hotel The Grand, Vasant Kunj in New Delhi. It is a residential event for members of CWC with a continuous live webcast on IMA website for non CWC members at http://ima-india.org/imalive/ 2-5 PM Saturday and 10-2 PM Sunday. Celebrations of centenary year of medical conferences in India will be observed simultaneously with the 218th CWC Meeting.
One of the issues that will be discussed among other such issues of concern to the medical fraternity is “Is the time ripe to shift from non-violence way of protest?” Drafting of Restoration guidelines is another issue on the agenda.
For every 1000 members there is one CWC member elected by the IMA state branch. They form the lower house of IMA and recommends all the policies.
The CWC forms the IMA upper house. Local branches select one CC member for every 100 members. This is the supreme body of IMA.
Though policy suggestions can be sent by individual members, it is always better to bring resolutions through the states via state CWC members. All suggestions of states and branches should be routed through CWC.
