The College’s historic House of Delegates (HOD) serves as our eyes and ears at the local and state level and enables us to keep you well informed of what is, or may soon be, impacting you, the practicing allergist. We need volunteers to join our nationwide, grassroots network and serve as the conduit between the College and allergists in your state.
Designated state delegates will serve as the main points of contact in each state and they will work closely with local and state societies to identify and address policy issues and/or legislation. These issues will be brought to the College’s Advocacy Council before they adversely impact the specialty.
The success of the House of Delegates will depend on the strength of its state delegates and regional super-delegates. Our 2020 campaign resulted in a great start to our quest for one delegate per state. The College is ready to advance with the state delegates we have and to recruit members to fill those positions in the following states where there are vacancies:
- District of Columbia
- New Hampshire
- New Mexico
- New York
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- South Dakota
Any College member in good standing can apply to become a state delegate through the HOD nomination process.
Serving as a delegate allows you to be the voice for your colleagues and patients. While priorities and activities may vary throughout the year, delegates can expect to dedicate one to two hours per month to this position. Learn more about this exciting opportunity in the College’s governance and apply now to represent your community. Applications will be accepted until Feb. 26.
