Why did the AASM raise the price of membership dues for 2023?
In 2023 the AASM is raising the price of individual membership dues for the first time since 2014. The dues increase reflects both the membership benefits that have been added over the past decade and the higher cost of producing goods and services. Despite this increase, AASM membership dues remain among the lowest of any medical society. The AASM continues to enhance and expand our benefits to ensure that membership remains a great value.
