Historical note
From June 1904 to May 1997, the House Delegates was the supreme governing body of RIMS. In 1997, RIMS became the second state medical society to eliminate its House of Delegates.

The RIMS Council meeting summaries are shared with all Council members the week following the last meeting. The Council members are encouraged to share this document with their colleagues and specialty society members. This is done to develop dialogue among Rhode Island physicians about what RIMS is and should be discussing at that time.
