STATE SOCIETY
A state society receives one voting delegate for every 25 active members whose national and state dues are current.

State societies also receive one voting osteopathic family practice resident delegate who is currently enrolled in good standing in an AOA or ACGME residency program in the represented state; is in good standing with the ACOFP state affiliate society; and is in good standing with the ACOFP and AOA.
