Get involved with TAFP
TAFP provides a variety of ways for members to be involved and help advance the mission. The organization is governed by a Board of Directors who oversee a set of committees and councils. The governance and engagement structure changed in November 2020. In the new structure, members can apply for appointments to councils and committees or take advantage of other opportunities for involvement with less commitment. This article contains more about the new governance and engagement structure.
Apply to serve on a committee or council
TAFP’s success depends on active engagement from members. TAFP has standing committees — Bylaws, Executive, Finance and Nominating with three-year terms for active members — and three councils — Workforce and Member Engagement, Medical Practice, and Health of the Public and Science — with two-year terms. Students and residents can be appointed to one-year terms. Applications will open for 2022 positions later in the year.
