Submissions open: May 31 - June 14, 2023
AACE is seeking a vice chair, authors, and a methodology fellow to update the 2020 algorithm on the management of persons with dyslipidemia to align with the clinical practice guideline on management of dyslipidemia, which is currently in development. This consensus statement will provide (1) visual guidance in concise graphic algorithms to assist with clinical decision-making of health care professionals in the management of persons with dyslipidemia to improve patient care and (2) a brief narrative to support the visual guidance found in each algorithm.
Applicants should be current AACE members in good standing, active in practice, and able to commit to at least 1 year of development.
Approved task force members will participate in video conferences, submit assignments via email, fulfill ICMJE criteria for authorship, and adhere to the AACE Conflict of Interest Policy.

Authors will provide input on development of graphic algorithms, write evidence-based narrative summaries to support visual guidance for assigned sections, and participate in discussions with the task force to achieve consensus on content.
The methodology fellow will receive authorship for assistance with identification and selection of evidence and development of the algorithm as assigned by the chairs.
