Member Interest Groups (MIGs)
The AAFP is committed to giving all members a voice within our increasingly diverse organization. MIGs were created as a way to define, recognize, and support AAFP members with shared professional interests.
Connect with a MIG
Learn about objectives and long-term goals for each MIG. Each group offers an online community for connection and conversation.
Note: As a first-time visitor to an online community, you will be asked to affirm a Code of Conduct prior to access.
How to Create a New Member Interest Group
Applications to create a member interest group must be submitted to the Commission on Membership and Member Services (CMMS).
The CMMS uses the following criteria when reviewing a member interest group application:
- Focus is consistent with the AAFP's definition of a MIG (i.e., a forum of active members who have shared professional interests)
- Furthers the AAFP's strategic objectives
- Does not duplicate groups represented by the current Board-approved member constituencies
- Membership is not limited by geography or employment by a single entity
- Does not duplicate chapters or membership categories that currently exist
- Does not substantially overlap the goals and objectives of any existing MIG
- Conflicts of interest for the MIG officers have been disclosed and there are no significant conflicts
If all criteria are met, the CMMS may recommend that the Board of Directors approve establishment of the proposed member interest group.
