The policy-setting body of the Academy.

What Is the House of Delegates (HOD)?

The House of Delegates (HOD) is the policy-setting body of the Academy, meeting annually to inform and direct the work of the MAFP leadership and staff.

Delegates, representing each local chapter of the MAFP, attend an annual meeting. They deliberate on proposed resolutions to enact changes in the MAFP policy and/or direction of its time and efforts.

The annual meeting includes advocacy and leadership updates from both the AAFP and MAFP as well as the election of MAFP officers.

Previously, this meeting was held the day before/after the annual Spring Refresher CME conference. It will now be a stand-alone meeting, which will rotate locations throughout the state and offer opportunities for members to participate via the web.

A Powerful Benefit of Membership

As a member, you can author resolutions that will not only guide the work of the Academy in Minnesota but also raise awareness of issues of importance to family medicine. Resolutions that pass our House of Delegates may even make it to the AAFP Congress of Delegates and become policy at the national level.

Participating in the policy setting of the Academy allows you to make the Academy work for you. It also provides opportunities for members to develop as leaders and advocates.

Be a change agent for your patients, your colleagues and our specialty. Find out how you can write resolutions or represent your local chapter at the House of Delegates.
