About NCCL

NCCL helps you develop the skills to advocate for issues that are relevant to your constituency, your practice, and your patients. The conference serves as a platform for different perspectives and concerns of AAFP members from underrepresented constituencies to help bring about change.

The five constituencies with representation at NCCL are:

  • Women
  • Minorities
  • New physicians (in the first seven years of practice following residency)
  • International medical graduates (IMG), from schools outside the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico
  • Gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) physicians

At NCCL, you will elect national officers, gain and enhance skills to become an articulate policy advocate and an effective leader, and meet others who share similar interests. Chapter delegates participate in all NCCL-specific business functions and have the opportunity to attend a variety of educational breakout sessions each day as well.
