2022 Membership Cycle

New candidate applications for the 2022 membership cycle may no longer be initiated. For each candidate's membership application that was fully submitted online by March 1, 2021, all support letters must be uploaded by a candidate's sponsors and up to three additional Fellows by March 31, 2021, in order for the applicant's name to be presented during the 2021 Annual Meeting.

After the initial presentation of all candidate names with completed applications in April, 2021:

  • Each candidate's name will be circulated to the entire membership in mid- to late-Spring 2021 so that ASA Fellows from a candidate's region and specialty may comment on them;

  • The Advisory Membership Committee will review and discuss every candidate in October 2021 at the ACS Clinical Congress;

  • At the January 2022 Council Meeting, the Advisory Membership Committee will make its recommendations regarding who should be included on the 2022 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 2023 membership cycle; and

  • The final 2022 ballot will be presented for vote at the Annual Business Meeting in Chicago, IL, in April 2022.

2023 Membership Cycle

The 2023 membership cycle is now open. The membership process can only be initiated by an ASA Active or Senior member by logging into the Members Only Area and submitting a candidate's name, email, and phone number, as well as selecting the secondary and tertiary sponsors. New to the 2023 Membership Cycle: Each application now requires six sponsors; the membership candidate, when submitting their portion of the online application, must enter the names of three additional Fellows who will serve as sponsors and submit letters of recommendation. A candidate's electronic membership application must be completed and submitted online by March 1, 2022, and all sponsors' recommendation letters uploaded by March 31, 2022, in order for that membership candidate's name to be read at the 2022 Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL.

After the initial presentation of all candidate names with completed applications in April, 2022:

  • Each candidate's name will be circulated to the entire membership in mid- to late-Spring 2022 so that ASA Fellows from a candidate's region and specialty may comment on them;

  • 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 2024 membership cycle; and

  • The final 2023 ballot will be presented for vote at the Annual Business Meeting in Toronto, Canada, in April 2023.

Please note that the timeline from completion of application to election at the 2022 Annual Meeting is at minimum 13 months long.
