CAFP members who wish to submit a resolution should ensure existing AAFP and CAFP policy does not already address the concerns. This should be done by consulting the CAFP Policy Manual and AAFP website.
Resolutions submitted by January 23, 2023 will be added to the agenda for the All Member Advocacy Meeting (AMAM), which will take place on March 25-27,2023. At the AMAM, the author(s) of the resolution have the opportunity to present their resolution to AMAM delegates and the CAFP Board, and the CAFP Board will have the opportunity to hear testimony from AMAM delegates.
Resolutions submitted during other times of the year are added to the agenda for an upcoming CAFP Board meeting.
The CAFP Board may vote to adopt, amend and adopt, not adopt, or refer the resolution to a Committee for further study.
The status of current resolutions is updated quarterly following each Board meeting.
Once a resolution is adopted, it becomes official and public CAFP policy.
