Funded delegate spots and scholarships available for NCCL and ACLF
Each year, AAFP holds the National Conference of Constituency Leaders and Annual Chapter Leader Forum together in Kansas City, Missouri. NCCL representatives and ACLF attendees from across the nation gather to discuss various issues, suggest policies and programs to AAFP, and receive leadership training. This year’s conferences will be held May 5-7 and TAFP is looking for members to serve on the delegation or apply for scholarships to attend.
TAFP opportunities for NCCL
Spots are available for five TAFP members to represent each of the five constituencies: new physicians (physicians who have been out of residency for seven years or fewer), women, minorities, international medical graduates, and GLBT. TAFP reimburses up to $1,000 for expenses for each delegate. In addition, TAFP created two additional opportunities to attend NCCL with funding. These scholarships will be awarded to one third-year resident and one minority physician.
If you are interested in being considered for one of the delegate slots, please send a current curriculum vitae and/or a statement of intent to Jonathan Nelson at email@example.com by Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2016. Be sure to let him know which constituency or constituencies you would like to potentially represent.
If you are interested in applying for the third-year resident scholarship or the minority scholarship, download the applications and send completed application forms to Kathy McCarthy at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, Feb. 15.
NCCL delegates will be chosen by a panel of TAFP members in late January, and the delegation is highly encouraged to attend the Interim Session meeting of the Section on Special Constituencies on Saturday, April 16, in Austin. The third-year resident and minority physician scholarship recipients are chosen by the Commission on Membership and Member Services and will be notified by March 15.
TAFP scholarships to ACLF
To assist in the development of future leaders, the TAFP Commission on Membership awards two $1,000 scholarships to first-time attendees of ACLF. If you are interested in applying for one of the two scholarships, download the application (below) and send it to Kathy McCarthy at email@example.com by Monday, Feb. 15.
The ACLF future leader scholarship recipients will be chosen by the Commission on Membership and Member Services and will be notified by March 15.
