Membership Dues

Membership Dues

My term as President, as well as the terms of all Executive Officers, has now been longer than any other in the history of our organization. We are well into our third year of a two-year term! We will all be pointing to the Covid pandemic in years to come as the cause of many unusual events. One of those unusual events came last year as we reduced our membership dues by 50%. We recognized that with threats to the anesthesiology profession from many fronts, the fact remained that we must maintain a vibrant and healthy ASSA, but we also wanted to be sensitive to the fact that many of our colleagues and many of our practices were impacted by Covid-19.

Today, we must return to the investment in our profession and patients. One of the greatest manners is to support the ASSA. The work that occurs daily as an ASSA Officer is vast and broad. We continue to address all issues that impact OR anesthesia and pain medicine. Only when we have full support from you and your colleagues can we achieve the necessary work. Our mission remains to represent the medical specialty of anesthesiology in Alabama and nationally. This task is intensive and complex, but our resolve and commitment to our patients and to the preservation of the profession is far greater.

We must maintain an active ASSA! This allows us to address boldly those who believe that the way to control costs is by decreasing the role of anesthesiologists. Decreasing our role will not advance quality and patient safety. The safest and most efficient perioperative care is delivered with an anesthesiologist. We work daily to deliver this message to all stakeholders.

Membership dues are $650 (tax deductible) for the 2021-2022 year. To achieve the necessary work we perform daily, and to be able to effectively respond to issues that directly affect our practices, your continued membership is needed.

Suzi Blaylock, M.D., President, ASSA
