A Message from Alaska AFP Board President, Dr. Jean Tsigonis
Dear AKAFP members:
Greetings from your President! I would like to update you on the activities of your Board. On October 1, 2017, we transitioned from having a Chapter Executive, to employing an agency to fulfill that position. We hired Premier Choice Association Management Company, out of Wisconsin, and we are excited about the partnership. The Board has sent you several emails explaining this transition, introducing you to Premier Choice and sharing the strategic plan for the Alaska state chapter of the AAFP.
We are focusing on serving the members, providing excellent CME, promoting physician well being, recruitment and retention of the workforce, advocating for Family Medicine and engaging the membership. This is your opportunity to let us know how we can serve you and how you would like to be involved.
Our next CME opportunity is our Winter Update in March at Girdwood. Go to our website for the details: Winter Update
We currently have a couple board positions available, including treasurer and advocacy committee. Let us know if you’d like to serve in that capacity.
The board is looking forward to your involvement.
Jean Tsigonis MD
