Each year, AAFP holds the National Conference of Constituency Leaders and Annual Chapter Leader Forum together in Kansas City, Missouri. NCCL representatives and ACLF attendees from across the nation gather to discuss various issues, suggest policies and programs to AAFP, and receive leadership training. In 2019, the conferences will be held April 25-27 and TAFP is looking for members to serve on the delegation or apply for scholarships to attend.
TAFP opportunities for NCCL
Spots are available for 10 TAFP members to represent each of the five constituencies: new physicians (physicians who have been out of residency for seven years or fewer), women, minorities, international medical graduates, and LGBT. TAFP reimburses up to $1,200 for expenses for each of the five delegatee and five alternate delegates. In addition, TAFP offers two other opportunities to attend NCCL with funding. These scholarships will be awarded to one third-year resident and one minority physician.
If you are interested in being considered for one of the delegate or alternate positions, please send a current curriculum vitae and a statement of intent to Jonathan Nelson at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Feb. 8, 2019. Be sure to let him know which constituency or constituencies you would like to represent.
NOTE: This is the first year TAFP will be sending alternate delegates, so please indicate whether you would prefer to be a voting delegate or a nonvoting alternate delegate. Our plan is to send this year’s alternate delegates as delegates in 2020, so be prepared for a two-year commitment. Please email Jonathan with any questions about this process.
If you are interested in applying for the third-year resident scholarship or the minority scholarship, download the applications and send completed application forms to Juleah Williams at email@example.com by Friday, Feb. 8.
NCCL delegates and alternate delegates will be chosen by a panel of TAFP members in early February, and the delegation is highly encouraged to attend the Interim Session meeting of the Section on Special Constituencies on Saturday, April 6, in Austin. The third-year resident and minority physician scholarship recipients are chosen by the Commission on Membership and Member Services and will be notified in mid-March.
