The Georgia Academy of Family Physicians is seeking resolutions for the 2022 Congress of Delegates (COD) meeting. Last year, the COD tackled issues such as prior authorization, setting policy on contributions for state legislators who sponsor legislation that criminalizes medical care, and providing pandemic-related resources for our members.
What is the Congress of Delegates, you ask? The GAFP Congress of Delegates is a governing body of the Academy that can set policy. It meets annually at the GAFP Annual Meeting to vote on and ratify decisions that are made by the Board all year, as well as to hear and vote on resolutions from all members.
We are soliciting your ideas and leadership in proposing resolutions for this year’s Congress of Delegates, the first session will be a live webinar open for all members to attend on Thursday, October 20 at this link: https://us06web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZctc-utqzwrG9bZ1tf6hxcWhVztuX32I4lu.
The final session will meet on Saturday, November 12 in person beginning at 1:00 PM in conjunction with the Annual Meeting held at the Marriott Northwest in Atlanta.
Staff and Speaker Monica Newton, DO and Vice Speaker Ellie Daniels, MD are available to assist you; contact Alesa McArthur at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800.392.3841. You can submit your resolution online.
We now have added resources on our website for tips on writing resolutions located at this link: https://www.gafp.org/congress-of-delegates/.
The deadline to submit resolutions is Friday, September 9.
