Key Contact Program

Get a seat at the table!

Are you ready to amplify your advocacy efforts and play a crucial role in shaping the future of family medicine in California? The CAFP warmly invites you to join our NEW Key Contact Program—a unique opportunity for you to become a vital voice representing Family Physicians across the state. This is more than just a membership; it's a chance to make a real impact.

The previous Key Contact program created a pathway to provide advocacy-focused communication to those members who opted in to receive the weekly Legislative Update. Some of those members were asked to testify at hearings, meet with legislators, or provide the valuable insight into the work you do. However, many of those key contacts were never engaged or brought to the table. Because of the importance of CAFP’s advocacy efforts, we now distribute the Legislative Update to all members, whether they are Key Contacts or not. And most importantly, we want all Key Contacts to be engaged. So, we are reigniting our Key Contacts program in 2024.


Unlike the previous Key Contacts program that was passive and not as engaging, our new program is designed to offer you an even more enriching experience, with exclusive opportunities, specialized trainings, and insider insights, including:

  • Expanded Learning Opportunities: Sharpen your advocacy skills, gain insights into new legislative developments, and stay at the forefront of policies affecting family physicians.
  • Exclusive Events: Be the first to access our quarterly events from our brand new Sacramento headquarters, providing you with insider information and networking opportunities.
  • Impactful Advocacy: Your voice matters. Renewing as a Key Contact allows you to continue being a leading advocate, representing Family Physicians in decision-making spaces.


As a Key Contact, your contributions are critical. We ask that you:

  • Respond promptly to action alerts: Via VoterVoices/SpeakOuts.
  • Attend our annual All Member Advocacy Meeting and Lobby Day.
  • Actively participate in exclusive Key Contacts trainings and insight events.
  • Make an annual contribution to the FP-PAC to ensure Family Physicians have a seat at the table with key decision makers.
  • Be a leading voice in statewide advocacy: Including testifying in Legislative Hearings, applying/serving in advisory groups, and learning how to be a better advocate in your organizations.
