With the presidential inauguration happening later this week, there has been a lot of talk about the first 100 days of the presidency and what may or may not get done. However, more importantly, about 100 days from now will be one of the most important Family Medicine leadership conferences of the year, aptly named the AAFP Leadership Conference.
There are two tracks of this meeting, both occurring at the same time: The National Conference of Constituency Leaders (NCCL) and the Annual Chapter Leader Forum (ACLF). In these sessions, participants receive training in skills like advocacy, while being updated in the hot health policy topics of the moment.
From a personal standpoint, this gathering is more than a a meeting to me. It's an opportunity to catch up with long time friends, and to make new friends. Family Physicians coming together to find common ground - which is to be advocates for our patients. In addition, through the years, it has been a great opportunity for me to sharpen my leadership skills.
And oh yeah, we have a lot of fun doing that, as you can see from the photo below, which is one of my favorite memories from the meeting, ever. Register by March 30th and Save $50. The pre-conference sessions begin April 26th with the main conference taking place April 27-29, 2016. We'll again be using the following hashtags for the meeting: #AAFPNCCL and #AAFPACLF.
