GENERAL GSDDS LEGISLATIVE FUND

A portion of your annual membership dues are earmarked for GSD's Legislative expenses, including employing the services of a lobbyist. This is, however, not enough. Contributions to the GSDDS Legislative Fund are needed to supplement the dues and ensure Georgia dermatologists are represented well in the Georgia General Assembly. Any contribution amount is welcome. Thank you!
