Please stand with us and advocate for our patients, our practices and our profession!
Important advocacy events include Leadership Day – ACP Services Inc.’s annual advocacy day on Capitol Hill, and ACP’s annual State of the Nation’s Healthcare briefing.
Call for Fall 2018 Board of Governors Resolutions
Are you concerned about a practice or clinical issue or do you have an idea you’d like to suggest? If so, you might consider submitting a resolution to the chapter.
Initiating a resolution provides ACP members an opportunity to focus attention at the ACP national level on a particular issue or topic that concerns them.. When drafting a resolution, don’t forget to consider how well it fits within ACP’s Mission and Goals. In addition, be sure to use the College’s 2017-2018 Priority Initiatives to guide you when proposing a resolution topic.
To begin the resolution process start by researching the College’s position on an issue. Visit the ACP Online homepage and click the “Advocacy” link in the right-hand, top margin to access ACP policy positions, read about recent ACP advocacy activities, or search ACP’s library of policies and recommendations.
Click here to access the Electronic Resolutions System (ERS) where you can search past or proposed resolutions. A copy of the resolutions process is available on the ERS which furnishes more details on formatting resolutions, as well the process for submission, review, and approval.
Members must submit resolutions to their Governor and/or chapter council. A resolution becomes a resolution of the chapter once the chapter council approves it. If effecting change interests you, the deadline for submitting new resolutions to be heard at the Fall 2018 Board of Governors Meeting is March 26, 2018.
Share your good idea with us. Draft a resolution.
