Your Board of Directors met on July 14, 2018 and considered resolutions submitted to the 2018 All Member Advocacy Meeting and the BOD directly. This dashboard is regularly updated to reflect actions taken on results throughout the year, including referrals and submissions to the AAFP. For more information, please contact


Our 2019 All Member Advocacy Meeting will be March 9-10, 2019 with Family Medicine Lobby Day on March 11, 2019 at The Citizen Hotel in Sacramento.




In response to requests received at the 2018 All Member Advocacy Meeting as well as policy adopted at the April 13, 2018 meeting of the CAFP Board of Directors, two steps are being taken to ensure members are kept abreast of resolutions submitted to the Board of Directors between All Member Advocacy Meetings (AMAM) or after the deadline for submission of resolutions to the AMAM, and have an opportunity to comment on those resolutions and be informed about Board actions taken subsequently on those resolutions:


  • All resolutions/policy proposals submitted to the Board of Directors after the deadline for receipt of resolutions at the AMAM and prior to the next meeting of the AMAM will be posted on the CAFP website and notification that they have been received and posted made to members in our Academy in Action electronic newsletter.  The resolutions will remain on the website until the next quarterly Board meeting at which they will be considered, but no less than one month prior to the next meeting. If a resolution is received within less than one month of a Board meeting, it will be held over until the following Board meeting to allow adequate time for members to comment. 


  • A chart reflecting actions taken by the Board on all resolutions will be posted on the website and updated after each quarterly meeting of the Board of Directors.


Questions or comments on this policy are welcome.  Please contact CAFP at  Thank you.  If you have a policy you'd like to submit to CAFP at any time of the year, please use the CAFP Policy Resolution form to do so.

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.
