Tips for meetings with members of Congress
Dr. Bruce Brod, chair of the AADA Government Affairs and Health Policy Council, shares advice for virtual meetings with legislators.
Dr. Brett Coldiron, chair of the SkinPAC Board of Advisors, gives an overview of SkinPAC and explains why it’s important to contribute.
SkinPAC’s political purpose is to solicit and receive contributions to be used to make political campaign expenditures to those candidates for federal elective office, and other federal political committees, who demonstrate understanding and interest in the views and goals of the American Academy of Dermatology Association.
Contributions to SkinPAC are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. SkinPAC cannot accept contributions from corporate accounts. All AADA members have the right to refuse to contribute without reprisal. Federal law prohibits us from accepting contributions from foreign nationals. Federal law requires us to use our best efforts to collect and report the name, physical address, occupation, and the name of the employer of individuals whose contributions exceed $200 in a calendar year.
Dr. Seemal Desai, chair of the Specialty Positioning Work Group, provides an overview of the SkinSerious specialty positioning campaign, which highlights how dermatologists treat serious diseases, collaborate with other specialists, and transform patients’ lives.
