Dear AASM Members,

We need your help. It will only take about 15 minutes of your time to contribute to a vision for AASM’s future.

The AASM board of directors is preparing to engage in dialogue to prepare for the future of the AASM. A major focus of that dialogue will be about how we can improve our service and support for members like you. To do that we need to know more about you, your work, your experience, and your experience with the AASM.

Will you take this important survey? In appreciation of your support, you will receive a $25 AASM credit in your membership account for completing the survey. You can log in to your member account now to access your unique survey link.

If you are interrupted while taking the survey, you can always pick up where you left off if you use the same computer with cookies enabled. About your privacy: Protecting your personal information and responses is important to us. We have engaged Tecker International, a firm that specializes in work with associations, to collect and analyze the responses from this survey. All responses will be reported in aggregate. No individual responses with identifying information will be available to anyone from the AASM.

If you experience technical difficulties while taking this survey, please email the research consultant, Robin Wedewer, at

Thank you for being a part of the AASM community. We appreciate your help with this important effort.

Best regards,

Douglas B. Kirsch, MD
