National Conference of Constituency Leaders (NCCL)
The National Conference of Constituency Leaders (NCCL) is the AAFP’s leadership development event that empowers a select group of change makers to catalyze positive change in family medicine. NCCL will inspire you to build on your leadership skills and create a lasting impact for current and future generations of family physicians.
Check back soon on information for the 2021 Annual Leadership Conference, April 29-May 1, 2021 (preconference April 28).
Are you ready to develop skills to advocate for issues that are relevant to your constituency, your practice, your specialty, and your patients? At NCCL, you will elect national officers, gain skills to be an effective leader, and meet others who share similar interests. Chapter delegates participate in all NCCL-specific business functions and have the opportunity to attend a variety of educational breakout sessions.
NCCL’s constituencies include:
- New physicians (in the first seven years of practice following residency)
- International medical graduates (IMG), from schools outside the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico
- Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) physicians or physician allies

Participants may claim Enrichment CME credits for attending any of the breakout sessions on an hour-for-hour basis.
Resolution writing is a great way to hone your advocacy skills. Work with fellow AAFP members to create resolutions that may influence AAFP policy.
