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.

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