The AAFP Board of Directors, at the recommendation of the Subcommittee on Screening, chooses members to present to the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM). From these board-selected nominees, one is selected by the ABFM Board of Directors at its annual meeting in April. Once selected to serve on the ABFM Board of Directors, the nominee represents the interest of the ABFM rather than the AAFP.
Nominations, including self-nominations, for the ABFM director position are solicited from the AAFP Board of Directors, current commission chairs and commission members, chapter presidents and executives, current AAFP AMA Delegation members, and past officers and directors.
A deadline of October 15 is specified for receipt of nominations to allow time to process the forms for consideration by the Board of Directors at its December meeting.
