Benefits of Joining

AAFP membership is unified, which means that members are required to belong to the national AAFP and to their appropriate chapter. Becoming a member with the AAFP, automatically makes you a member at NYSAFP! (Student membership is free, IMG membership is only at the National level.)

Two members from each AAFP chapter serve as delegates to the AAFP Congress of Delegates, which is the organization’s policy-making body. AAFP members can submit  resolutions requesting that their chapter or national organization take action on issues that they would like to see addressed.
