Call for Resolutions

Each year, MAFP solicits resolutions for consideration at the Annual Meeting of the membership. Any member in good standing is invited to submit a resolution(s), which will be accepted, reviewed, and voted on at the Annual Meeting with approval requiring a majority vote. In accordance with MAFP Bylaws, no resolution may be submitted to the Annual Meeting unless such resolution has been submitted in writing to the Chief Executive Officer at least thirty (30) days prior to the meeting at which it is to be acted upon. Late resolution will be approved only by an affirmative vote of two-thirds (2/3) of the members of the Annual Meeting present and voting.

The 2020 MAFP Annual Meeting will take place during the 2020 Michigan Family Medicine Conference & Expo, being held August 6-9 at the Detroit Marriott in Troy.

All approved resolutions affecting the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) will be sent to AAFP for consideration at the 2020 convening of the AAFP Congress of Delegates.
