Membership Dues

Membership Dues

My term as President of the ASSA is well into its second year, and what a year this has been for everyone. Even during normal times, and as others who have served in this role will attest, the work that occurs daily as an ASSA Officer is vast and broad. Along with your elected leaders from across the state, we remain committed to 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 a vibrant and healthy ASSA but we also want to be sensitive to the fact that many of our colleagues and many of our practices have been impacted by Covid-19. The ASSA officers throughout the past 20 years have been good stewards of the generous financial support you provide in membership dues. I am happy to report that our reserves are healthy and our financial outlook is solid. Due to the fact that practices have been impacted and because of smart budgeting, the ASSA officers have determined that a dues reduction of half of the normal amount is in order. This will allow us to continue 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 best delivered with an anesthesiologist. We work daily to deliver this message to all stakeholders.

Membership dues are $325 (tax deductible) for the 2020-2021 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. Please pay your membership dues today!!!
