AAFP Delegates Choose New Leaders for 2022-23
As president-elect, Furr serves on the Board’s executive committee, chairs the Board’s Subcommittee on Strategic Planning and Development and is a member of the Board’s Screening Subcommittee. Based on his interest or expertise, he may chair one of the Academy’s task forces or other Board-appointed work groups. He will routinely participate in AAFP cluster meetings, preside at the annual Family Medicine Experience meeeting if the president is absent and may be called on to represent the Academy in communicating with individual members and external groups, including lawmakers. The president-elect succeeds to the office of president and, if a vacancy occurs in the office of president, serves the unexpired term of president and then a full term as president.
