AAFP Commissions

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2018 AAFP commissions, ABFM Director position, and AAFP Delegation to the AMA. A memo (3 page PDF) announcing the call for nominations will be sent from Dr. John Meigs on July 15, 2017. The deadline for nominations is October 15, 2017. Only chapters can submit nominations for commissions and the AAFP Delegation to the AMA. However, the AAFP Board of Directors, at its April 2013 meeting, revised the ABFM director position process to solicit nominations, including self-nominations, from current commission chairs and commission members, current members of the AAFP AMA Delegation, and current and past officers and directors of the AAFP. Resources are available to assist with the nomination process including a list of vacancies on each commission, nomination process information for commissions, ABFM Director, and AAFP Delegation to the AMA, and the new online nomination forms for each position.

Nominations must include:

  • Nomination letter from the chapter,
  • Commission nomination form and photo,
  • Completion of the online conflict of interest form.
