64th Annual House of Delegates will be held
May 6th, 2021
Held Virtually starting at 8AM
The WAFP House of Delegates happens annually in May. The purpose of the event is to help steer the agenda for the state academy and work towards it's mission and vision. In January, the state academy informs each chapter how many delegates they have based on the current membership rolls. Typically the King County academy has a substantial amount of representation.
When this event is in person, the physical location rotates around the state and the KCAFP and/or WAFP typically offer some form of travel reimbursement dependent on how far an individual has to travel. Interested in learning more or coming in 2021, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Medical Students and Residents in King County have their own contingencies and should Register via the WAFP website.
It's never too early to think about writing resolutions to be submitted by our chapter to the Washington State Academy.
The King County Chapter usually submits resolutions after careful consideration of the Board of Directors. We typically have a resolution tutorial at our December board meeting with brain storming in January, and votes on which ones to support at our February meeting. Previous resolutions passed can be viewed at the WAFP website under the Get Involved, House of Delegate tab.
Please submit resolution drafts via e-mail by the end of December to be voted on by the KCAFP Board of Directors. If you miss this deadline, you are able to submit your resolution directly to WAFP staff at email@example.com (co-authored by at least two full WAFP members) directly to the WAFP. Final resolutions are due to the WAFP in February. Check their website for official deadlines.
For information on how to write a resolution, watch the WAFP sponsored presentation from Dr. Cawse-Lucas & Dr. Wells.
