|Policy - ACPM Resolutions|
Do you have a burning issue on which you would like ACPM to take a position and/or advocate? Then submit a policy resolution to the College.
Each year ACPM issues a call to its members for policy resolutions in conjunction with its annual Preventive Medicine meeting. The ACPM resolutions process was launched as a way for members to take a more active role in the development of ACPM policy positions and national preventive medicine advocacy.
A resolution is a concise statement of the College’s position on a particular issue and serves as a call to action for the organization and its members. It describes and endorses a defined course of action directed toward a particular individual, organization, event, or piece of legislation.
The ACPM Policy Committee and Board of Regents meets in person twice each year—at the ACPM annual meeting in February and ACPM’s offices in Washington, DC in the Fall—at which time resolutions will be reviewed and considered for adoption. While a call to the membership for resolutions will be issued only one time each year in conjunction with the ACPM annual meeting, members are welcome to submit resolutions to the College at any time.
The latest call for resolutions, guidelines for introducing resolutions, and a schedule for resolution development are below.
