Congress of 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.


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.

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 in October (Date TBA), and the final session will meet on Saturday, November 12 in conjunction with the 2022 Annual CME Meeting at the Marriott Northwest in Atlanta.

Do you need help writing your resolution? Staff and Speaker Monica Newton, DO and Vice Speaker Ellie Daniels, MD are available to assist you; contact Alesa McArthur at or 800.392.3841. You can submit your resolution online at Call for Resolutions 2022.

The deadline to submit resolutions is Friday, September 9.

Join us as a delegate!  If you are interested in serving your district by being elected as a COD delegate for your district, please reach out to Alesa McArthur and she will confirm your district number, then send you a survey to complete to nominate yourself and others from your district.
