Nominating Committee Seeks GAFP Board Applicants

The Nominating Committee is working to pull together a slate of candidates for the 2018 GAFP Board of Directors.  GAFP leadership has a history of excelling at both the state and national levels and far outpaces other physician groups in innovative and new initiatives.

The Congress of Delegates will vote on the slate for the 2018 Board in late summer.  (Residents and Medical Students will hold their own elections in the fall.)

If you are interested in becoming more active in the Georgia Academy, please consider applying.  Your time commitment is 4 meetings a year (typically March, June, August and November) and being available to GAFP leaders, staff, and your district colleagues should issues emerge that require your leadership input and participation.

All Board members receive one free registration per year for either our CME Summer or Annual meeting as a token of our appreciation for your hard work.

Board members are asked to be the eyes and ears of your community and bring to the leadership issues important to family physicians from your hometown.  Please click this link,, and respond by May 15 if you are interested in applying for the 2018 Board.
