TAFP accepting applications for NCSC and ALF delegate spots and scholarships
TAFP is looking for the 2010 delegation to the National Conference of Special Constituencies and Annual Leadership Forum, as well as applicants for other Academy scholarships to these conferences.
Each year, AAFP holds the NCSC and ALF in Kansas City, Mo. NCSC representatives and ALF attendees from across the nation gather to discuss various issues, suggest policies and programs to AAFP, and receive leadership training. This year’s NCSC and ALF conferences will be April 29-May 1.
For more information on conference schedules and to register, go to the ALF section of the AAFP website or the NCSC section of the AAFP website. Register by March 12 and save $50 on the registration fee.
TAFP opportunities for NCSC
Slots are available for five TAFP members to represent the five special constituencies: new physicians, women, minorities, international medical graduates, and GLBT. TAFP reimburses up to $1,000 for expenses for each delegate. In addition, TAFP created two additional opportunities to attend NCSC 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 slots, please send a current CV and/or a statement of intent to Jonathan Nelson at firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb. 10. Be sure to let him know which constituency or constituencies you would like to represent. A sub-group of the TAFP Section on Special Constituencies will select representatives before the 2010 Interim Session meeting March 6 in Austin. Delegates will be notified before the Interim Session meeting and are encouraged to attend, especially those who have never attended NCSC.
If you are interested in applying for the Third-year Resident Scholarship or the Minority Scholarship, download the applications (below) and send completed application forms to Kathy McCarthy at email@example.com by Feb. 10.
