The NCAFP 2024 Calendar 

Many NCAFP events, activities, and important dates in 2024 are listed below.

Return to this page periodically, since we'll add new resources, images, and information as we develop these events.

The ACLF is a time when the NCAFP joins with other state chapters to focus on new ways to address the issues affecting all our members, all by engaging in important dialogue with counterparts around the country. It's where our staff and board members gain valuable takeaways from colleagues and refine their leadership skills.

The 2024 ACLF occurs April 18-19 in Kansas City, MO. To learn more, review the full AAFP guide to the Forum.
