About the PPMD Adult Advisory Council (PAAC)
The PPMD Adult Advisory Council (PAAC) serves to ensure that the voices of adults living with Duchenne & Becker Muscular Dystrophy are reflected in PPMD’s legislative, policy, and program activities. PAAC members serve in a formal advisory capacity for their respective term and maintain leadership over a PAAC initiative throughout that term; PAAC initiatives are determined by the PAAC membership and PPMD Executive Team.
PAAC Member Requirements
To be eligible to serve on the PAAC, members must be age 18 or older at the time of application and diagnosed with either Duchenne or Becker muscular dystrophy. All PAAC members are required to participate in monthly Council conference calls or webinars. In-person meetings will occasionally be held and meeting attendance is strongly encouraged but not required for membership.
To Apply for PAAC Membership Consideration
Please submit a brief statement of interest, along with a brief biography, and resume (optional) to Annie Kennedy, PPMD Senior Vice President – Legislation & Public Policy. Your Statement of Interest should include information about what contributions you feel you could make to the PAAC and what (if any) leadership and committee experience you have had in the past.
