How the Missouri Chapter Influences AAFP Policies

Two members from the Missouri AFP serve as delegates to the AAFP Congress of Delegates, which is the organization’s policy-making body. Missouri Academy members may submit resolutions on issues that they would like to see addressed. Missouri Academy leadership determines whether resolutions should be submitted to the AAFP Congress of Delegates.  For more information on how to submit a resolution to the Missouri AFP Board of Directors, click here.
