ACAAI 2014 Annual Scientific Meeting
Benefits
The competition for improvement of allergy organizations has some members concerned. ACAAI leadership wants to tell you: There is no side for you to be on. We are all on the same side — the side of making allergy a survivor in the upcoming tumultuous medical changes we are facing. And, we’re on the side of patients, as well as the doctors who take care of patients. That includes doctors who teach other doctors, as well as doctors who provide us with the tools for the next generation of patients. Everyone is in this together.

The College has spent a lot of its time and energy over the last few years raising the image of allergy and the allergist in the minds of the public. We were driven by surveys that showed only a small percentage of the public knew that allergists treated asthma! We changed that. We think ours was a successful effort with tremendous ongoing public and media attention for allergists. The project is continuing every day; we want people to know what we do and how well we do it.

Now the College is turning more to internal help for allergists since the environment for CME and MOC has changed so radically. Having done extensive surveys of the membership, we have developed a plan we think you are going to like. Not only are we developing education modules, we are going a step further. Here's what you can expect before long: a blizzard of new educational opportunities, constructive help for your MOC activities and new member-only incentives. If you've been trying to decide if you're going to attend the ACAAI Annual Scientific Meeting in Atlanta, here's a definite incentive.

Every current Fellow attending the meeting will get a coupon after the meeting for full coverage of 2015 ABAI MOC fees. It's going to be like a $150 gift card at ABAI checkout. If you haven't paid your 2015 ABAI MOC fees, and you can wait until after the meeting, the College will help you in this matter. Even if you are a grandfather, here is a chance for a free look. You might find it’s better than you thought.

If you have been waiting on an invitation to upgrade your ACAAI membership to Fellowship to be able to take advantage of the MOC credit, here it is. You have to be a member in good standing for two years. All you have to do is fill out this form. You can contact membership at (847) 427-1200 or membership@acaai.org.

If you are young in practice, we are going to help you with lower Annual Meeting rates. All ACAAI members who graduated from a U.S. training program in 2011 through 2013 will receive $100 off Annual Meeting registration fees.

We know members are frustrated and concerned about the practice of medicine today. We feel your pain because the leadership and Board of the ACAAI are practicing physicians. We are working as hard as we can to relieve some of the stress you feel in day-to-day life. The outcome of all these activities is going to be good for you.
