RACGP partnership and prizes The issue of how the AAAGP supports the RACGP ASM was discussed. 

Justin met with Doris Young and Chris Del Mar to discuss efficiency around granting shared research funds between the organizations.

In principle AAAGP is in agreement that we should work with the RACGP to administer shared research funds. We need clarification about where non-members fit within this arrangement. We propose that non-members (??) would be represented on this committee.
Justin Beilby to discuss with Doris Young
PHCRED Funding beyond 2004 Discussion about making a submission to Margaret MacDonald. Justin will discuss this issue with Nigel Stocks and will progress the discussion in the New Year.
PHCRIS –AAAGP Research conference Submissions from previous years are available to Mark Harris on the AAAGP website. In 2003 we have agreed to organize this with PHCRIS – yet maintain a separate day with an AAAGP badging. The day is to consist of workshops and discussion groups rather than presentations of completed work (which should be submitted to the PHC RIS conference). Justin will email Mark Harris to inform him about putting in a submission for funding to Margaret MacDonald.

Mark Harris will need to liaise with Libby Kalucy and Alison Ward to ensure smooth organisation of the day.

Academic Registrar funding Discussed - no action at present  
Prize for best 'unpublished' paper

It was agreed that this prize go ahead. The prize will be for a $250 book voucher and a certificate.
