MAFP Annual Meeting

The MAFP Annual Meeting serves as the platform for Family Physicians in Michigan to reflect on successes from the past year and identify the challenges that lie ahead. At the Annual Meeting, members assemble to examine proposed changes to MAFP policy and governance, elect new leadership, and debate issues that impact members.

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.

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.
