Winter seems to want to hang on in our province, but I am optimistic that Spring will be arriving soon, and with it, the possibility of new beginnings. Fittingly, this season often coincides with many new opportunities for our members. The ACFP is only able to provide members with regular new initiatives and programs due to our Board and Committees behind the scenes. If you find yourself wanting to make a difference, join meaningful discussions, and contribute your perspective to ACFP activities, I encourage you to volunteer for one of our dynamic committees.
CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS
We are currently looking for passionate members to engage in member program and service development. There are currently multiple vacancies that available on the Committees for Summit Planning, Virtual Education, Membership Advisory, as well as Awards and Recognition. Each of these committees are vital to ACFP operations, and we truly appreciate all our members who volunteer to support them. Please visit the “Volunteer with the ACFP” page on our website to learn more about these committees and how your voice can be heard by volunteering on them.
AWARD NOMINATION EXTENSION
“Small seeds of gratitude will provide a harvest of hope.”
As the ground thaws this month, as you begin planting seeds in your garden or farm, consider planting a seed of gratitude for a colleague by nominating them for an ACFP Award. The deadline for nominations has been extended to May 1 to ensure everyone has a chance to celebrate the students, residents, peers, or clinics in their lives. We look forward to receiving your nominations in the coming weeks.
Wishing you an April full of inspiration, rejuvenation, and tranquility.
