    Hi,

    There is a proposed change to the AAE's policies and procedures.   The new proposed addition is below (highlighted in yellow).  

    Please send us your comments or questions to admin@asthmaeducators.org

    A Board of Directors consisting of 12 members shall govern the Association, except for years when the immediate Past President serves an additional year (see below) during which the board will have 13 members. 

    The Board President, when serving his/her final year of service of the elected term, will automatically remain on the BOD, transitioning into the Past President position. This extension is not considered another term of service on the board.  The Past President position allows for full voting privileges, during that time, there will be 13 voting members on the BOD.

    FDA takes additional action to mitigate EpiPen shortages by extending expiration date for specific lots of medication
    FDA News Release (08/21/18)

    FDA on Tuesday took additional action to mitigate shortages of EpiPen (epinephrine) auto-injector by extending the expiration date of specific lots of 0.3 milligram products marketed by Mylan by 4 months beyond the labeled expiration date. This change beyond the approved 20 month shelf life is based on stability data provided by Mylan and reviewed by FDA. To help ensure patient safety, these products, which already have been dispensed to patients, should have been — and should continue to be — stored as labeled. While product is currently available, multiple factors, including regional supply disruptions and manufacturer issues, have contributed to EpiPen’s limited availability in certain areas in the United States. FDA continues to work closely with Mylan on EpiPen production and supply, and also has been in contact with the other manufacturers of epinephrine auto-injectors, including Adrenaclick and Auvi-Q, regarding their supply as the school year begins since this is historically accompanied by increased product demand. The agency also recently approved the first generic version of EpiPen. Mylan also has established a customer service number, which has been posted on FDA's website, to help pharmacies and patients locate EpiPens if necessary. Information on supply information of other approved epinephrine autoinjector products can also be found on the agency’s website:

    Please consider running for the board of directors.   We need your help, talents, new ideas and leadership to advance our mission.    One of the greatest strengths of AAE is our diverse membership which is focused on our common goal.  

    Information about the Board:

    The Board consists of twelve (12) members.  Each of these twelve (12) members serves a three (3) year term.  A board member can only serve on the board for two (2) completed three year terms. Once the two terms are served, the board member must rotate off the board for two (2) years before reapplying for the board.  The 2018 call for nominations has four (4) positions to be filled.

    Who can serve? Members in good standing with the Association who have held their AAE membership for at least one year prior to applying are eligible to apply. A committee made up of board members will review the applications and complete an evaluation form on each applicant.

    How do I apply? To submit your application to serve, you must send your current CV that highlights your experience relevant to asthma and asthma education, along with a head photo, and a 100-word vision statement for AAE and how your membership on the board will contribute to your vision, to the Chair of the Nominating Committee.  Applications will be accepted until August 10, 2018.  No late submissions will be accepted.

    How is one elected to the board?  Once all the applications have been received and reviewed, a slate of candidates for available board positions will be sent to the membership for election by the members. This general election process starts on the first Monday in October, 2018, and closes on October 31, 2018.  A notification of acceptance will be sent to successful nominees letting them know of their election to the Board.  A notification will also be sent to each person that applied that did not get elected.  The newly elected Board of Directors will take effect January 1, 2019.

    Board members attend a phone meeting each month, an in-person meeting each year at the annual conference and assist with the planning and executing of AAE activities throughout the year. 

    Please contact me with any questions.   Also, if you can attend the upcoming annual conference, please come talk to any of the board members for more information.

    Thank you for your membership, dedication and interest in serving the Association of Asthma Eduators.

    Gregory Metz, MD, AE-C

    Chair, Nominations Committee
