GAFP’S 2019 CONGRESS OF DELEGATES: CALL FOR RESOLUTIONS

The Georgia Academy of Family Physicians is seeking resolutions for the 2019 Congress of Delegates (COD) meeting. Last year, the COD tackled issues such as online patient reviews and surveys, uncompensated afterhours physician care, and determinants of maternal mortality in Georgia.

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/conference call on Thursday, October 17, at 6:00 pm and the final session will meet on Saturday, November 16 in conjunction with the Annual Meeting held at the Evergreen Marriott Conference Resort in Stone Mountain.

Do you need help writing your resolution? Staff and speaker Carl McCurdy, MD and Vice- Speaker Samuel “Le” Church, MD, MPH, FAAFP are available to assist you, contact Angela Flanigan at aflanigan@gafp.org or 800.392.3841. You can submit your resolution online at https://www.gafp.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Resolution-Form-2019.pdf.  The deadline to submit resolutions is Friday, September 13.
