Apply for delegate spots and scholarships for AAFP’s NCSC and ALF conferences
TAFP is looking for the 2011 delegation to the National Conference of Special Constituencies and Annual Leadership Forum, as well as for applicants for other Academy scholarships to these conferences.
Each year, AAFP holds NCSC and ALF in Kansas City, Mo. NCSC representatives and ALF attendees from across the nation gather to discuss various issues, suggest policies and programs to AAFP, and receive leadership training. This year’s NCSC will be held May 5-7 and ALF will be held May 6-7.
TAFP opportunities for NCSC
Slots are available for five TAFP members to represent the five special constituencies: new physicians, 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 NCSC 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 CV and/or a statement of intent to Jonathan Nelson at email@example.com by Feb. 11. Be sure to let him know which constituency or constituencies you would like to represent.
