• Constituent Chapters

    AAFP membership is unified, which means that members must belong to the national AAFP organization and their appropriate chapter. The AAFP has a chapter for each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, and Uniformed Services.

    Chapters provide a variety of benefits to members, with each chapter offering its own menu of benefits, including:

    • Local and regional continuing medical education (CME)
    • Networking
    • Mentoring opportunities
    • Leadership opportunities: Many members in leadership positions at the chapter level advance to hold national leadership positions by serving on an AAFP commission, task force, or the national board.

    Chapters also help advance the specialty of family medicine by advocating to local and state legislators.
