I am asking for your support/vote as a Maryland Delegate to the AAPA HOD again for 2016 – 2017. I have been an active delegate for 12 years, missing only one year in sequence due to the demands of the MAPA Presidency in 2015. This year, my peers have voted me to be the Chief Delegate, given my leadership and tenure as a Delegate. I believe that the Maryland constituency has been represented with strength and stability at the national level, and I am looking forward to the challenge of participation and leadership in this capacity this year. I believe that knowledge of national policy, communication with other state and constituency leaders, and participation with the national leadership will help me serve the Maryland PAs much better. I will continue to champion communication with MAPA’s membership, including newsletter articles detailing the hotly-debated topics in the HOD as well as the membership survey polling your opinions on potentially contentious resolutions brought forth by other constituencies. I believe that your leadership needs to be accountable for its actions, and I promise to deliver on your behalf if you elect me!
