The College’s House of Delegates (HOD) strives to serve members at the local, state and regional level. ACAAI’s state delegates are the conduits between the HOD, the Advocacy Council and the College. The HOD works closely with the College’s national Advocacy Council to help identify opportunities and prevent issues from adversely impacting the allergy specialty.
Are you ready to join us? The deadline to apply is tomorrow, February 28.
The success of our HOD depends on having adequate representation across the country. We’re looking for a few more active College members – like you – to serve as local advocates, supporting the work of the HOD and creating a national network of advocating allergists. Read the State Delegate job description for more information. We are recruiting state delegates from: Alaska, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, and Wyoming.
We hope you will apply to serve as one of our College-appointed state delegates. If you’re a College member in good standing, who is interested in local legislation, establishing and maintaining contact with local/state legislators, physicians, state and regional allergy societies, and communicating allergy issues between these groups, you’ve got what it takes. The College state delegate will become a leading advocate, and the College will provide the training needed to do this job. We have virtual training webinars and in-person training sessions planned.
Serving as a state delegate is an opportunity to represent the College, the HOD and your colleagues. State delegates share legislative intel between local, state, and regional societies and College leadership.
The College is a leading advocate for allergists and you can be too! The HOD is positioned to effect change by identifying and addressing legislative and policy issues before they can adversely affect our specialty. Our multi-layer representation at the local, state, regional, and national levels help us in this effort.
We hope you’ll join us! State Delegate applications will be accepted until Feb. 28; apply now to represent your community, your colleagues and the allergy specialty.
