Advisory Board

 The Advisory Board’s (AB) mission is to protect, promote, and preserve the interests of dermatologists by providing a forum for Academy members to present policy proposals for consideration by the Academy’s Board of Directors. Learn more about the AAD's Advisory Board.

The AB has worked to strengthen its outreach through increased communication, solicitation of feedback on key issues, and the provision of opportunities to participate in discussion forums around key policy issues.

Visit the AB Forum, a secure online community where representatives can communicate with each other, review and track resolutions, access documentation, and view the latest updates.
