Get Involved in Effecting Change with the NYACP Resolutions Process

What policy, practice, or public health issues impact you, your patients, colleagues, or staff? We want to hear from you!
Use the resolutions process to initiate change in  our state or at the federal level right from your home or office.

The Resolutions Process is a mechanism for grassroots involvement in the affairs and policy discussions of the College and Chapter. Members who have an interest are encouraged to actively participate by submitting a short synopsis of the challenge to your practice and a proposed solution.  Resolutions can address ACP/NYACP policy and also state and federal health policy issues. You may submit your resolutions at any time online.

Visit the NYACP Resolutions page to learn more and to access the online submission form.  You may also contact your local Governor or Councilor if you would like to discuss your ideas further, or let Chapter staff know if you would like additional assistance in developing a resolution.

Over the past few years, topics such as payment reform, paperwork and administrative hassle, onerous regulations, public health, patient safety and membership services have been introduced as resolutions through our Chapter.  Let your voice be heard!
