Nomination Process and Responsibilities

The Leadership Commission puts forward the slate of nominations for leadership positions for the Academy including board members and officers, delegates to the AAFP and MSSNY and speaker and vice speaker of the Congress of Delegates, the annual meeting of the NYSAFP.

Potential candidates may be nominated through county chapters or may be self-nominated if no chapter is serving a particular county. The Leadership Commission must receive nominations 60 days prior to the annual meeting and will publish the proposed slate 30 days prior to the annual congress.

Full details of the process and positions are included in the bylaws.
