The article reports that the Canadian Medical Association's (CMA) Governance Review Task Force will make changes to the practice of rotating and electing the CMA president. It states that since CMA was formed in 1909 all facets of its structure have remained unchanged including the appointment of members to the CMA boards of directors, process for electing the president and the practice of rotating the president through provincial associations in Canada. CMA Chair Louise Clouthier and task force Chair Dan O'Brien proposed the reforms before CMA's 2007 annual General Council meeting.
