TAOG members and officers represent Ob/Gyn physicians and our patients at every level of local and state government. Officers are frequently in Austin, attending TMA, TDH and DSHS/HHSC meetings, meeting with legislators, and keeping track of pending bills and legislation affecting our patients and our practices. We employ one of the most outstanding lobbyists in Texas, and our presence as a medical society is well respected. Your dues help fund these efforts.
In addition, every year ACOG and TAOG jointly hold one of the most outstanding scientific CME meetings. These meetings provide CME and ethic CME credits, and provide great networking and fellowship opportunities with colleagues from around the state. Nationally recognized speakers provide updates in all areas of our specialty, and our business meetings will keep you informed on what is of crucial interest to you and your patients.
While ACOG represents us on a national level, TAOG is your state voice. We encourage all ACOG members to also join TAOG to help our efforts locally. We were instrumental in passing the direct access bill in 1997, and in liability reform. Help us continue to work on the behalf of all of our women patients in Texas.
