About ALF

ALF is the AAFP’s leadership development program for chapter-elected leaders, aspiring chapter leaders, and chapter staff. Among other roles, ALF functions as an orientation for emerging leaders who serve on chapter boards, as well as professional development for new and seasoned chapter staff. Drawing more than 200 attendees each year, ALF also features targeted breakout sessions on chapter governance, advocacy, and communication.

ALF is a time to focus on, and find new ways to address the issues that affect the members of your chapter and state, by engaging in important dialogue.

Attend ALF to:

  • Discover solutions to chapter challenges
  • Learn from your colleagues
  • Strengthen relationships with peers and AAFP leaders
  • Refine leadership skills
