Annual Meeting partnership: Meeting programming


The AAD Annual Meeting is the hub for premier dermatologic education to strengthen the specialty and ensure the best care for patients. Here are some ways to support meeting programming.

The Gala brings together AAD leaders, member donors, and corporate supporters. The Academy’s Annual President’s Gala at the 2022 AAD Annual Meeting will showcase and raise support for impactful programs treasured by President Kenneth J. Tomecki—the AAD’s community initiatives that work tirelessly with education, public awareness, volunteerism, and equity to improve access to quality dermatologic care.

Based on the level of support, benefits will include engagement and recognition opportunities before, during, and after the Gala with logo placement on event communications, invitations and seating, and more.
