The Pacific Dermatologic Association is now actively looking for members interested in serving in leadership positions within the organization starting at our Annual Meeting in July 2020.

The 3 available positions are:

President-Elect is a 3-year overall term on the Executive Committee, including serving as President in 2021-2022. Vice President is a 1-year term (2020-2021) with the ability for renewal. The Resident Representative serves a 1-year term (the year they are PGY-4) and provides a voice for all trainee PDA members. A list of the current PDA Executive Committee members can be found here
