Votes needed
ACAM
If you are an ACAM member, your VOTE is needed. The Bylaws Committee, Executive Committee and Directors of the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) have approved the following bylaws for changes and in accordance with our current bylaws. We now present these to the current voting membership of ACAM for ratification and approval. There are five (5) changes being proposed. These proposed changes are being presented in the order in which they appear in our bylaws.

An attempt was made to present these live at our Spring Conference, however, per the by-laws, we did not have the required 10% minimum in attendance for a quorum and as such we were unable to present. The by-laws allow for an electronic vote in such conditions.

Each member is asked to go online to our free online survey and take just 10 minutes to complete this five question survey which deals with five proposed changes. To complete the survey, click HERE.

Thank you for voting and exercising your ACAM membership rights.

LEGAL & LEGISLATIVE CORNER


Virginia Governor signs Lyme disease legislation
Fairfax Times
Gov. Bob McDonnell ceremonially signed the Lyme Disease Information Disclosure Act of 2013 at Claude Moore Park in Sterling, Va. The legislation was championed by state Del. Barbara Comstock (R-Dist. 34) and supported by a slew of Northern Virginia lawmakers, many of whom were in attendance for the signing. The location selection, Claude Moore Park in Sterling, was not by chance. Loudoun and Fairfax counties are ground zero in Virginia for the debilitating Lyme disease, which is frequently spread through ticks and deer.

The Associated Press via NECN.com
Maine Gov. Paul LePage has signed a bill aimed at promoting Lyme disease awareness. The bill requires the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention to include certain information on its website about Lyme disease diagnosis and treatment. Among other things, the website must say that a negative result for a Lyme disease test doesn't necessarily mean Lyme disease isn't present. The International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society Physicians says false-negatives for Lyme disease occur 54 percent of the time.
