Find out more about the people who help shape our organization: the Congress of Delegates, the board of directors, our executive management team, and a number of commissions and committees that govern the AAFP.
Experienced family physicians who understand day-to-day life in primary care serve on the board of directors. They follow the same mission as that of the AAFP: improve the health of patients, families, and communities by serving the needs of members with professionalism and creativity.
From membership relations and education to marketing and research, this group leads our day-to-day operations so we can best serve you.
Organization-appointed delegates represent the Academy in the committee hearings of Advocacy, Education, Health of the Public and Science, Organization and Finance, and Practice Enhancement at the National Conference of Constituency Leaders.
Our commissions make recommendations to the board regarding policy, development of new programs and projects, improvements to current activities, and potential discontinuation of activities.
With a focus on the future, both medical students and residents serve as elected or appointed leaders.
