2018 Membership Cycle
The 2018 membership application cycle is now open and new applications may be initiated by current ASA Fellows in the Members Only Area. A candidate’s electronic membership application must be completed and submitted online by March 1, 2017, and all sponsors’ recommendation letters uploaded by March 31, 2017, in order for that membership candidate’s name to be read at the 2017 Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

After the initial reading of all candidate names with completed applications in April, 2017:

  • Each candidate’s name will be circulated to the entire membership in mid- to late-Spring 2017 so that ASA Fellows from a candidate’s region and specialty may comment on him/her;

  • The Advisory Membership Committee will review and discuss every candidate in October 2017 at the ACS Clinical Congress;

  • At the January 2018 Council Meeting, the Advisory Membership Committee will make its recommendations regarding who should be included on the 2018 ballot, with the Council setting the final ballot;

  • All Primary Sponsors are then notified whether their candidates made the final ballot, so that those who were not selected may reapply anew for the 2019 membership cycle; and

  • The final 2018 ballot will be presented for vote at the Annual Business Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona, in April 2018.
Please note that the timeline from completion of application to election at the 2018 Annual Meeting is at minimum 13 months long.


2017 Membership Cycle
The 2017 membership application cycle is now closed.

Here are the remaining steps in the 2017 Membership Cycle:

  • The Advisory Membership Committee will review and discuss every candidate in October 2016 at the ACS Clinical Congress;

  • At the January 2017 Council Meeting, the Advisory Membership Committee will make its recommendations regarding who should be included on the 2017 ballot, with the Council setting the final ballot;

  • All Primary Sponsors are then notified whether their candidates made the final ballot, so that those who were not selected may reapply anew for the 2018 membership cycle; and

  • The final 2017 ballot will be presented for vote at the Annual Business Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in April 2017.
Please note that the timeline from completion of application to election at the 2016 Annual Meeting is at minimum 13 months long.
