Resident Advocacy/Program Liaison - A volunteer(s) from each program serves as the communication point-person between the NCAFP and their respective program. These residents are typically in their 1st or 2nd year, have an interest in leadership and becoming more involved in the Academy in the future; however, 3rd year residents are also welcome. The liaison's role is to help communicate issues of importance to your peers, primarily around advocacy issues but it isn't necessarily limited to advocacy and legislative topics. Time commitment is minimal and email contact will be carefully and minimally utilized.
In addition to NCAFP leadership opportunities, there are many resident leadership options at the national level with the AAFP. Many of these positions require support from your state chapter, as a result please note that NCAFP's deadlines are prior to AAFP deadlines. For all elected positions and some appointed positions, the NCAFP deadline is May 31st. For some appointed positions, the deadline is Aug. 5th. Review the: NCAFP Policy for AAFP Nominations.pdf.
