Explore the benefits of membership in TAFP and AAFP.
Get involved with your Academy
Apply to serve on a council or committee
TAFP’s success depends on active engagement from members. TAFP has standing committees — Bylaws, Finance, and Nominating, each with three-year terms. For active members, TAFP also has three councils — Workforce and Member Engagement, Medical Practice, and Health of the Public, each with two-year terms. Students and residents can be appointed to one-year terms.
Engage with Member Communities via the TAFP membership app
Join communities of your peers with the TAFP membership app, which offers a simple interface for discussions among our councils, committees, and member interest groups. The TAFP membership app is the online hub of our family medicine tribe, our place to spark ideas, solve problems, and effect change to make America’s health care system the best it can be.
Tell us more about you
The governance and engagement structure allows for member communities and the creation of short-term action groups to carry out the work of the councils. Fill out this form to tell us more about your interests and willingness to participate in virtual meetings, task forces, and work groups. Staff will use this information to reach out when opportunities arise.
Interim Session and Annual Session
The councils host town-hall-style forums during Interim and Annual Session, and all members are invited to join the discussion.
Represent TAFP at AAFP's NCCL and ACLF
