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. In 2023, the conferences will be held May 9 – 11 and TAFP is looking for members to serve on the delegation or apply for scholarships to attend.
Texas Delegation to NCCL
Spots are available for 10 TAFP members to represent each of the five constituencies: new physicians (physicians who have been out of residency for seven or fewer years), women, minorities, international medical graduates, and LGBT physicians. TAFP reimburses up to $1,400 for expenses for each of the five delegate and five alternate delegates. In addition, TAFP offers two other opportunities to attend NCCL with funding. These scholarships will be awarded to one third-year resident and one minority physician.
TAFP has scholarships for additional members to attend NCCL – a third-year resident scholarship and the minority scholarship. TAFP also has two scholarships to assist in the development of future leaders. The leadership development scholarship is specifically for first-time attendees of ACLF. All four scholarships are up to $1,000 in travel reimbursement to attend the conference. If you are applying for a delegation position, you will automatically be considered for a scholarship if not selected for the delegation.
