TAFP is governed by a system of committees, commissions, sections, and task forces made up of TAFP members. These groups report to the Board of Directors who ultimately decide the direction of the Academy. These policy-making groups meet twice a year at Interim Session in the spring and Annual Session in November. Committees, commissions, sections, and task forces range in size from five to over 30 members. The Board of Directors is made up TAFP’s six officers and two delegates to AAFP, three at-large directors, one new physician, one special constituency representative member, one resident physician, and one medical student.
