2020 Membership Cycle
The 2020 membership cycle is open, and new candidate applications may be initiated by current ASA Fellows from within the Members Only Area. The Association strongly sponsorship of membership applications for women leaders and underrepresented minorities, as well as from a range of surgical specialties. Each candidate's electronic membership application must be completed and submitted online by March 1, 2019. All support letters must be uploaded by a candidate's sponsors and up to three additional Fellows by March 31, 2019, in order for the applicant's name to be read at the 2019 Annual Meeting in Dallas Texas. After the initial reading of all candidate names in April, 2019:

  • The names of candidates will be circulated to the entire membership in mid- to late-Spring 2019 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 2019 at the ACS Clinical Congress;

  • At the January 2020 Council Meeting, the Advisory Membership Committee will make its recommendations regarding who should be included on the 2020 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 2021 membership cycle; and

  • The final 2020 ballot will be presented for vote at the Annual Business Meeting in Washington, DC, in April 2020.
Please note that the timeline from completion of application to election at the 2020 Annual Meeting is at minimum 13 months long.


2019 Membership Cycle
The 2019 membership application cycle is now closed.

Here are the remaining steps in the 2019 Membership Cycle:

  • At the January 2019 Council Meeting, the Advisory Membership Committee will make its recommendations regarding who should be included on the 2019 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 2020 membership cycle; and

  • The final 2019 ballot will be presented for vote at the Annual Business Meeting in Dallas, Texas, in April 2019.
Please note that the timeline from completion of application to election at the 2019 Annual Meeting is at minimum 13 months long.
