MMA Board of Directors Elects Paul Cain, M.D. and Erik Steele, D.O. to Executive Committee

The MMA Board of Directors held its last regular business meeting of the year at the Association's headquarters in Manchester on Wednesday, November 6th.  In recent years, the Board has held an "organizational meeting" to elect three at-large members of the volunteer leadership team that is the Executive Committee at the first business meeting after the Annual Session.  Board members re-elected R. Scott Hanson, M.D. to a second term on the Committee and elected new members Paul Cain, M.D. and Erik Steele, D.O.  Dr. Hanson is an internist practicing primarily at the VA.  Dr. Cain practices orthopaedics with Spectrum Health Care Partners and Dr. Steele is a family medicine practitioner and physician executive with Martin's Point Health Care.  The three at-large members of the Executive Committee serve with the officers of the Association, including President Amy Madden, M.D.; Immediate Past President Robert Schlager, M.D.; President-elect Karen Saylor, M.D.; and Treasurer Michael Parker, M.D. 

The Board considered several other important items of business, including the MMA's advocacy work with Maine Families for Vaccines in opposition to the "People's Veto" campaign regarding L.D. 798 and follow up to the strategic planning work conducted during the annual President's Retreat in late October.  The Board created ad hoc committees to oversee the MMA's work on both of these initiatives.  The MMA's investment advisory team led by James L. Jackson at RBC Wealth Management also presented its annual investment report to the Board.

The Board of Directors will meet next in mid-January 2020.
