2020 Annual Meeting

UPDATE: As you know, the AFMRD Annual Meeting is held in conjunction with AAFP’s PDW and RPS Residency Education Symposium. The AAFP has cancelled this meeting. The AFMRD is currently working on ways to conduct necessary business remotely. Please stay tuned for further emails with instructions on elections for board members, voting on bylaw changes, and other activities that customarily happen at the annual meeting.

The AFMRD meets annually to conduct business, elect members to serve on the AFMRD Board of Directors, recognize members' accomplishments, discuss important issues, and review the organization's activities over the course of the year.

Please join us for this year’s annual meeting:

April 4, 2020
10 am-12 pm
Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center
Kansas City, MO
Exhibit Hall B

This meeting is held during the AAFP’s PDW and RPS Residency Education Symposium. Although the PDW and RPS Residency Education Symposium is an AAFP hosted event, this session is exclusively a meeting of the AFMRD.
