CAFP All Member Advocacy Meeting, March 9-10, 2019 and Lobby Day, March 11, 2019
The Citizen Hotel, Sacramento

 

CAFP’s All Member Advocacy Meeting (AMAM) is your chance to learn how Academy policy is made, network with colleagues with similar policy interests, discuss resolutions before the CAFP Board of Directors, and hear from speakers on a wide range of topics. Local chapters are encouraged to fill their delegations and to bring students and residents to the meeting. CAFP’s Lobby Day follows the AMAM and includes training to help you prepare your remarks for the meetings with legislators and staff. Please consider attending this important policy event. For more information, contact Lisa Folberg, MPP, CAFP CEO or Adam Francis, CAFP Director of Government Relations.

Your Board of Directors met on November 3, 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 cafp@familydocs.org.

 

 

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 cafp@familydocs.org.  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.
