Committee and Team Overview

  • Committees and Fast Action Teams (FATs) are the driving force of the Missouri Association of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons (MAOPS). FATs have replaced many standing committees. FATs allow us to more effectively address issues at hand. The FATs, which will be formed when a specific need arises, will perform their work (usually 1 - 2 meetings per year) and then disband. Past FATs have included Medicaid Expansion Analysis, Young Physicians Social and Young Physicians Education.


Finance and Audit Committee

  • Overview: The Finance and Audit Committee is responsible for reviewing and revising MAOPS and Wetzel budgets and audits, presenting financial information for approval to the Board of Trustees, reviewing budgets throughout the fiscal year and recommending changes in coordination with MAOPS Executive Director. This committee also serves as the audit committee for both MAOPS and the Foundation. Volunteers should possess some expertise in finance and/or business operations.


Education and Convention Committee

  • Overview: The Education and Convention Committee is responsible for developing and coordinating the Missouri Osteopathic Annual Convention (MOAC), which includes: education curriculum, business meeting schedules, exhibit hall management and social events.
