General Assembly – August 3, 2012 – Destin, FL
Submitted by: Derek Anderson, MD, Speaker, LAFP General Assembly
Daniel Jens, MD, Vice-Speaker, LAFP General Assembly
The 65th annual General Assembly convened on August 3rd in Destin, FL. Speaker Derek Anderson, MD, presided as around forty members and guests discussed issues and elected officers for the upcoming year. The meeting provided members with addresses from Michael Bertaut, Healthcare Economist and Exchange Coordinator for Blue Cross Blue Shield of LA; Thomas Grimstad, MD, President/CEO of LAMMICO; and John Meigs, MD, AAFP Speaker.
During the meeting, after the annual reading of the necrology report honoring our members who have left us in the past year, a resolution was passed (see below). The resolution approved called for an amendment to the LAFP bylaws from the approved resolution of the 64th General Assembly.
We had un-contested elections with many of the officers agreeing to serve another term as well as a nomination from the floor. I would like to personally thank all of the members who agreed to serve and remain active in the Academy. After completing our business by early afternoon, Dr. Anderson called for an adjournment. We hope everyone enjoyed their time in Destin. We look forward to seeing you all next year in New Orleans!
