IAFCC’s work would not be possible with the support of our committees. Our committees are made up of staff of our member clinics and work hard to brainstorm new and exciting ideas for our programming. At this time, IAFCC has 4 committees which are all open to new members in order to diversify ideas! If you are a Member of IAFCC and are interested in joining a committee, please e-mail Melissa Maguire at

The Advocacy and Policy Committee is responsible for guiding the Association in advocating for and developing policies that address the health care gaps of the uninsured and underinsured in Illinois. A priority of the committee will be to advocate for policies and resources that support Free and Charitable Clinics in Illinois as a valuable member of Illinois’ safety net.

The Quality Improvement Committee initiates, collects, and disseminates data to improve clinical care within the association.

The Clinic Month Committee is responsible for facilitating brainstorming and implements ideas for the IAFCC’s Clinic Month. This committee seeks to develop programming that can be used association-wide to unite the clinics and inform community stakeholders of Free and Charitable Clinics.

The Conference Advisory Group is responsible for overseeing the IAFCC Annual Conference. Activities include guiding content as well as securing speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and resources for the conference. The Committee also assists in planning the logistics for the conference. The committee provides leadership and support during the conference.
