The success of the College’s 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 march forward with the state delegates we have lined up and to recruit members to fill those positions in states where there are vacancies: Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, and Wyoming. Any College member in good standing can apply to become a state delegate.
College state delegates will serve as the main points of contact in each state. They will work closely with local and state societies to identify and address policy issues and/or legislation – before they adversely impact the specialty – by bringing those issues to the College’s Advocacy Council.
The College’s historic House of Delegates (HOD) has been repurposed to serve as the College’s eyes and ears at the local and state level to keep the College informed of what is affecting you, the practicing allergist. We need you to join our nationwide, grassroots network as the conduit between the College and allergists in your state.
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.
