CAFP’s 2018 All Member Advocacy Meeting will be held Saturday-Sunday, March 10-11, 2018, followed by Family Medicine Lobby Day on Monday, March 12. The AAFP has reviewed and approved the AMAM for 7.75 AAFP Prescribed credits. Our meeting again will be at The Citizen Hotel in Sacramento, but will start a little earlier and end a little earlier on the first day – an 11 am start-time and a 4 pm end-time. If you’d like to make your reservation at The Citizen, please call 916-447-2700 and mention that you should receive the Academy’s convention rate of $169 plus tax.




The deadline for receipt of resolutions for the 2018 CAFP All Member Advocacy Meeting (AMAM) was December 18, 2017. Resolutions submitted by the deadline will be included in the Participants Handbook, accompanied by Fiscal and Speaker’s Notes as needed. The Handbook will be available to attendees in early February. Resolution authors and others are invited to testify before the CAFP Board of Directors during the AMAM.  No action will be taken on the resolutions at the AMAM, but the Board will consider what actions should be taken during the course of the year and will report back at the next AMAM as to their disposition. As a reminder, CAFP members are invited to submit proposed policy resolutions to the CAFP Board of Directors at any time during the year, not just at the AMAM.
