Those wishing to address the Board or Committee need not request permission in advance; however, the Board or Committee may limit those persons speaking during the “Call to the Public” to three (3) per side on any one issue. The Board or Committee can only take action on matters listed on the agenda.
A.R.S. § 38-431.02(H).
If appropriate, actions on public comment matters that are not listed on the agenda will be limited to directing staff to study the matter or schedule the matter for further discussion at a later date.
A.R.S. § 38-431.01(H)
Review the agenda for the meeting that you wish to attend and make a public statement. The agenda will give you the date, time, location and/or the appropriate phone number or hyperlink to use to join the meeting.
Call in to the meeting using the information from the agenda (from #1) and tell the operator that you wish to make a public statement for a matter listed on the agenda (knowing the case number or physician’s name is helpful to staff). Only provide your initials if you are the patient and/or complainant, or when referring to the patient only use their initials to preserve their privacy.
Wait until your case number, physician name or initials are called out by the meeting moderator to speak during the Call to Public.
At all times not speaking (telephonic and virtual) please mute your telephone or computer microphone to reduce feedback and be respectful of all meeting attendees.
Should you have any questions about this process, please contact the Board Coordinator’s Office at 480.551.2734 or by email
