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.

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.
