GAFP’s Congress of Delegates: Call for Resolutions

The Georgia Academy of Family Physicians is seeking resolutions for the 2015 Congress of Delegates (COD). Last year, the COD tackled issues such as adult vaccine policies, access to medical information and supporting rural hospitals.

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 that meets November 7 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 or 800.392.3841. You can find the form to submit your resolution online at and the deadline to submit resolutions is Friday, August 28.
