We have changed the structure of membership slightly, and we will use the website going forward as the mechanism for collecting dues and sending renewal notices. While we have kept the website open to all in the last year, we will be moving some features behind your membership ID.
This includes video recordings of recent conferences, some selected publications, selected past PPT presentations, and private discussion forums. But you are not joining for the website; you are joining to be an integral part of our developing field.
There are two factors in the price of membership. The first is the style of membership. Many will be general members, but those who have participated in at least three of the last five annual meetings can also consider membership as a fellow. We also charge a bit more to practicing physicians (anticipating they may have more academic funds). Anyone outside of practicing physicians is broadly grouped as allied and includes all trainees.
