Communicating with your classmates and faculty is key to having a successful FMIG. One FMIG saw their membership grow just by advertising events two weeks in advance and having their events at the same place and at the same time every month. Another FMIG sent text messages to members to remind them about upcoming meetings and events.

Additional Communication Tools
In addition to communicating with students through conferences, mailings and handouts, the AAFP also has five regional Listservs specifically for FMIG members and student leaders. These are a great way to stay in touch with the AAFP and FMIGs in your region, and to gain information about best practices.
Some tips for using the Listservs:
Connect with the FMIG Network and interact with other family medicine students and AAFP leaders.
The AAFP has a variety of family medicine handouts and brochures that FMIGs can use to promote the specialty and their student group. These are great for student organization fairs or for introducing new students to the group.

Your regional coordinator is a great resource for information about the AAFP and FMIG Network. Don’t hesitate to contact any Regional Coordinator about programming ideas, FMIG events or other questions you may have about your FMIG.

The AAFP has created a customizable logo for your FMIG to use for creating posters, banners, t-shirts and more.

Contact your Regional Coordinator to connect with specific FMIGs in your area. If you’d like to plan a regional event, the FMIG Regional Listservs are a great way to communicate your event and find other interested FMIGs.
