Congress of Delegates

GAFP’S CONGRESS OF DELEGATES: CALL FOR RESOLUTIONS

The Georgia Academy of Family Physicians is seeking resolutions for the 2017 Congress of Delegates (COD). Last year, the COD tackled issues such as transmission of controlled substances electronically to pharmacies as well as the numbers of delegates that could be allotted for each of the family medicine residency programs and Georgia medical schools-with the assistance of student and resident delegates.

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 on Thursday, October 3 and the final session will meet on Saturday, October 28 in conjunction with the Annual Meeting held in Atlanta at the Westin Buckhead.

Do you need help writing your resolution? Staff is available to assist you, contact Alesa McArthur at amcarthur@gafp.org or 800.392.3841. You can submit your resolution online at http://www.gafp.org/about_gafp.asp and the deadline to submit resolutions is Monday, August 21.
