FAFP Resolution Submission Portal

In an effort to address issues in a timely fashion, members are encouraged to submit proposals year-round to be reviewed by the FAFP Board of Directors, which meets at least three times annually. Members are required to submit their resolution, or resolutions, by using the online submission form located on this page.

Resolutions may be submitted by any FAFP member in good standing (or “author”) for endorsement/approval by the FAFP board of directors and subsequent submission to the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) for either the Congress of Delegates (COD) or the National Conference of Constituency Leaders (NCCL), or the Florida Medical Association House of Delegates (HOD).

Vetting Process

  • FMA HOD Resolutions will be immediately forwarded to the FAFP Delegation to the FMA for vetting and guidance prior to being submitted for approval by the FAFP board.  The FAFP Delegation will review the resolution(s) and offer guidance to the author prior to the deadline (see below) but will not offer opinions regarding the resolution to the FAFP Board.

  • AAFP COD Resolutions must first be submitted by the author to the FAFP AAFP Advisory Council (AAC) prior to being presented to the FAFP board for approval.  The ACC will review the resolution(s) and offer guidance to the author prior to the deadline (see below) but will not offer opinions regarding the resolution to the FAFP Board.

  • AAFP National Conference of Constituency Leaders (NCCL) resolution authors, in the spirit of learning and collegiality, are highly encouraged to submit NCCL resolutions to the AAC for review and guidance (prior to final submission) with the understanding that, by default, said resolution only represents the author’s views, not those of the FAFP.
