Annual Chapter Leader Forum (ACLF)

Plan to Attend NCCL

May 5-7, 2016 Kansas City, MO (Preconference May 4)

National Conference of Constituency Leaders (NCCL) is the AAFP's leadership and policy development event for underrepresented constituencies.

About NCCL

NCCL serves as a platform for different perspectives and concerns of AAFP members to help brin about change. The five constituencies with representation include:

  • 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 or physician allies

At NCCL, you will develop skills to advocate for issues that are relevant to your constituency, your practice, your specialty, and your patients. You will elect national officers, gain skills to be 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.


Resolution writing is a great way to hone your advocacy skills.  Work with fellow AAFP members to create resolutions that may influence AAFP policy.


Find information about positions elected at NCCL, election procedures, and how to apply.
