Announcing Bylaw Changes to be Presented to Membership

Announcing Bylaws Changes to be presented to Membership:

Attention all NAFP Members—As previously published in the Cornhusker Family Physician magazine (Winter 2017, Volume 63, Issue 1), a motion was made at the Board of Directors meeting November 4, 2016, to combine several of the committees to simplify the NAFP committee structure. It was proposed that the Public Affairs and Publication Committees be combine, as well as the Nomination Committee and Leadership Committee. This would call for a revision of the NAFP Bylaws. Unanimous approval was given by the Board of Directors for both proposals and it was recommended that the bylaws be presented to the membership for approval. The bylaws were voted on at the annual business meeting, Friday, March 31, 2017, at the 69th Annual Scientific Assembly, Embassy Suites La Vista Conference Center and Hotel in La Vista, NE. This was approved.

The NAFP sent the changes to the AAFP for final acceptance in accordance with the bylaws and the AAFP had several recommendations for revisions to the bylaws they would like the NAFP to consider. The changes were reviewed at the November 10th Board Meeting and approved. The changes for the bylaws will be put forward for a vote to approve at the Annual Business meeting, by the membership, Friday, March 23, 2018, at the 70th Annual Scientific Assembly, Embassy Suites La Vista Conference Center and Hotel in La Vista, NE.
