Nine candidates are seeking election to Academy offices and the AAFP Board of Directors. The AAFP Congress of Delegates will elect officers and new directors Sept. 14 in Orlando. Before then, find out what the candidates' views are on issues that matter to you by checking out the "2011 Candidates" Web page.
You also can ask questions of this year's candidates via the "2011 Candidates Question & Answer Forum" (Members Only) option shown on the main candidates Web page or by using the "Question & Answer Forum" link shown in the left-hand column of each individual candidate's page. Each office also has its own Web page with a link to the Q&A forum for the candidate or candidates for that office. After you've posed your question, be sure to check back later to see the candidates' responses.
If you find you share common ground with certain candidates on issues important to you, your practice and your patients, consider asking your chapter delegates to the AAFP Congress to vote for those candidates.
