AMSUS membership provides professional development and networking opportunities through our monthly peer reviewed journal, the Annual Education Meeting, and our robust CE program. Our members represent all healthcare disciplines and are (or have been) affiliated with a federal health agency, the Department of Veterans Affairs, as well as individuals of the military medical services of other nations.
Three helpful Membership Tips directly from the Executive Director, VADM Michael Cowan (USN) Ret.
1. Membership dues increase $10 on January 1. If you are about to renew, do it now!
2. The “Member-Get-a-Member” program is alive and well. When a member recruits a new member, the referring one receives an AMSUS Challenge Coin in thanks. All the new member needs to do is complete the “Referred by” section of the application.
3. NEW PROGRAM JUST ANNOUNCED AT THE 2014 AMSUS ANNUAL MEETING:
“PAY IT FORWARD”
We have all been helped in our careers by others; mentors, leaders, guides, family, and friends. Too often we never say thanks. If you think that may apply to you, then allow AMSUS to help you honor someone special in your life in three easy steps:
1. Go to the AMSUS web site and join AMSUS for two years (that’s only $145 today, up to $155 in January).
2. Email me and tell me who you want to recognize, a brief description of why (optional) and their mailing address.
3. I will send a lovely AMSUS Challenge Coin to your designee with a brief handwritten note of thanks on behalf of AMSUS.
- Individuals who are currently, or have at any time been, associated with a federal health agency or the Department of Veterans Affairs – directly or as a consultant.
