SLMMS Approves Association Management Agreement

SLMMS Approves Association Management Agreement
The Council of the St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society (SLMMS) has unanimously approved a proposal brought forward by the SLMMS Strategic Planning Committee to enter into an association management agreement with the Missouri State Medical Association (MSMA) beginning in January, 2024. The committee has been studying multiple options over the past several months following the announcement of Executive Vice President David Nowak’s plans to retire from SLMMS at the end of February, 2024.
Under the terms of the agreement, which runs through 2026, MSMA will designate an individual to serve as SLMMS Executive Director, reporting to the SLMMS Council, who will carry out the functions currently handled by the Executive Vice President, including meetings and events, advocacy efforts, publications, finances and operations. MSMA will also assume oversight of the St. Louis Society for Medical and Scientific Education (SLSMSE), the Medical Society’s charitable organization, reporting to the SLSMSE Board of Trustees.
The SLMMS office at 1023 Executive Parkway in Creve Coeur will remain open, and long-time Business Operations Manager Chris Saller-Sorth will continue to serve as staff. Chris will continue to manage business affairs, dues billing and handle member inquiries, working closely with the MSMA staff in Jefferson City. Jim Braibish will continue to serve as managing editor of St. Louis Metropolitan Medicine. MSMA will produce both in-person and virtual events and meetings for SLMMS under the terms of the agreement.
Members should see and experience very little change in their membership and current operations. More details will be shared with the membership as the new executive director is appointed prior to Mr. Nowak’s retirement.
If you have any questions, please contact the SLMMS office.
