Interim Session Business Meetings
Each year TAFP holds its Interim Session in conjunction with the C. Frank Webber Lectureship. All committees, commissions, and the Board of Directors meet to discuss current issues in family medicine and set recommendations for the Academy.
Even if not appointed to a certain committee, all TAFP members are invited and encouraged to attend most meetings as a non-voting guest. Section membership is not appointed and these meetings are open to all. Download a PDF of the Interim Session schedule here. To view the agendas and backup materials for each meeting, go to www.tafp.org/membership/members-only. You will need to log in with your AAFP ID number as the username and your last name in lower case letters as the password. Most groups meet on Saturday, but the Commission on Legislative and Public Affairs and the Commission on Continuing Professional Development meet Friday, 7 - 9 p.m.
