Fam Med Forward 2020 Canceled

We have made the difficult decision to cancel Fam Med Forward this year.  After careful consideration and much discussion amongst the leadership, your Academy feels it is in the best interest of you and your fellow attendees, speakers and exhibitors to cancel the conference scheduled for June 4-6, 2020 in Manhattan, KS.  We are disappointed to take this action as we had an outstanding roster of CME lined up, important Academy business to take care of, as well as many opportunities for you to connect with your peers.  But we believe this is the right choice to make at this time as we face this healthcare crisis head on.

If you have already registered for Fam Med Forward 2020, please contact Michelle Corkins,, to make arrangements for your registration fees.


Your Academy want’s do help answer any of your questions.  Below is a list of frequently asked questions.  If you have any further questions, please be in touch with Michelle Corkins,

Q1: What does this mean for my registration?

You have three options for your Fam Med Forward 2020 registration:

  1. Roll over your registration for Fam Med Forward 2021 (Wichita, June 10-12).
  2. Donate your registration fees to the KAFP-Foundation (tax deductible).
  3. Receive a full refund.

Q2: What about the contribution(s) I made to the Foundation with my registration?

You have a few options for the Foundation contribution(s) you made with your registration:

  1. Leave your Foundation donation (sponsor medical student and/or Wine Ticket purchase) as-is. This remains tax deductible.
  2. Receive a refund for your contributions (sponsor medical student and/or Wine Ticket purchase).

Q3: What does this mean for earning CME?

We know CME is important to our members. At this time the KAFP staff team are brainstorming plans for alternative means of providing CME opportunities to our members virtually later this year. Stay tuned for more information to come on these developing opportunities.

Members who CME re-election cycle ends on Dec. 31, 2020, have an additional year to fulfill their CME requirements. Learn more about AAFP changes related to CME requirements and dues online.

Q4: What does this mean for District Elections and Officer Elections?

The KAFP Board of Directors, working within the confines of our bylaws, have determined the current pandemic constitutes an emergency and have enacted emergency bylaws. These temporary bylaws allow the association business to continue. Part of that business includes conducting the elections of new leaders electronically. We’ll be hosting a Town Hall Meeting for the entire membership in May and will communicate with members about the elections, nominations from the floor and more in the coming weeks.

Don’t forget…

If you have already reserved your room at the conference hotel please make sure to contact the hotel to cancel your reservation.
