DEADLINE: June 1, 2022

The Wisconsin Academy of Family Physicians Board of Directors invites members to submit resolutions for consideration to the AAFP Congress of Delegates. 

Your Chance to Influence Policies and Programs of the AAFP

The Wisconsin Academy of Family Physicians Board of Directors invites members to submit resolutions for consideration to the AAFP Congress of Delegates.

All resolutions must be submitted to the WAFP office in the resolution format no later than June 1. Resolutions must be submitted by using the form below. The Board of Directors will make the final determination as to whether to submit the resolution to the Congress of Delegates on behalf of the WAFP.

Due to a shift to a virtual format for the Congress of Delegates this year, resolutions must be submitted by a state chapter. Resolution submissions from individual members will not be considered.

To be considered, resolutions must meet the following criteria:

  • Only resolutions of an exigent nature to AAFP policy will be considered (exigent is defined as ‘pressing, demanding and requiring of immediate action’).
  • Each Chapter can submit up to two (2) resolutions for consideration. Resolutions submitted by more than one chapter will be applied to the lead chapter’s maximum.
    • If WAFP receives more than two (2) resolutions, our COD Delegation and Board of Directors will decide which to submit to the Congress.
  • Once the submission deadline has passed, no late resolutions will be accepted except those of an emergent nature that are due to events that occur after the deadline, as determined by the Speaker and Board Chair. Resolutions meeting these criteria cannot exceed the maximum of two (2) resolutions per chapter.
  • Since resolutions must be exigent to be considered in this special session and this stipulates chapter consideration, no individual member resolutions will be considered.
  • If the Speakers, in consultation with the Rules Committee, determine that a submitted resolution reflects current policy, and therefore would not be of an exigent nature, the resolution will not be considered. These resolutions can be resubmitted at a future COD for consideration as per the standing rules for a regular COD meeting.
