Submit resolutions to Academy’s Advisory Board by June 7


By Terrence Cronin, MD
Chair, Advisory Board

Beginning this year AAD members will have the opportunity to submit resolutions two times a year. As you know the Advisory Board (AB) convenes to deliberate on issues of importance to individual practitioners, and to bring proposed new policies to the Academy’s Board of Directors for consideration. If there is an issue of interest and/or concern, now is your opportunity to submit a resolution from which an official Academy position might arise. Even if you do not have experience drafting resolutions, I encourage you to contact Academy staff or members of the Advisory Board Executive Committee with ideas and they will be able to guide you through the submission process.

To ensure full consideration, all resolutions must be submitted by June 7. The author and/or their AB representative must submit an updated conflict of interest and a statement of support with their resolution for consideration by the full Advisory Board. The statement should state the reasons why the Advisory Board should adopt the resolution. The full Advisory Board will consider the submitted comments and resolutions and then vote this fall.

Below are instructions for submitting a resolution:
