CSA 2021 Nominations & Election

The 2021 California Society of Anesthesiologist House of Delegate election has come to a close.

We would first, like to congratulate our new and re-elected directors, delegates, and alternate delegates. We are thrilled to welcome you all to our House of Delegates this coming June.

Additionally, we would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s elections process, including our nominees and all our voters. We had an above average turnout which is impressive during these difficult times.

Our next step in CSA’s governance process is the selection of the CSA 2021-22 Committees. Keep an eye out for committee applications to open up in late April!

With that, I am thrilled to introduce you to our election winners below.

Sincerely,

Philip R. Levin, MD

CSA Secretary
