|Welcome to the AAD/A Advisory Board Portal! |
The Advisory Board’s (AB) mission is to protect, promote and preserve the interests of the individual practitioner of dermatology by providing a forum for Academy members to present policy proposals for consideration by the Academy’s Board of Directors. The leadership of the AB has worked to strengthen its outreach to the members of the Advisory Board through increased communication, solicitation of feedback on important key issues such as the Academy’s role in influencing health system reforms, and the provision of opportunities to participate in discussion forums around key policy issues. This online portal allows representatives to communicate, track status of resolutions, access documentation and view important AAD/A updates related to the Advisory Board. I invite you to visit our site often and encourage you to send us comments and suggestions.
Representatives to the Advisory Board are intended to serve as an important communications, policy and membership link between the Academy and the regional, state and local dermatologic societies. The Advisory Board Executive Committee worked to increase the visibility of Advisory Board representatives within their respective societies by developing a one-page document for the dermatologic societies that highlights the value of their participation in the Advisory Board, and outlines ways to strengthen communications with their AB representatives; click here to read the one-pager.
