5. What’s the difference in memberships?
All members have full access to website features and all benefits outlined. Associate membership is given to members who are still in training and to emeritus (retired from active pathology employment) members, at a reduced rate of $10.
A Regular Member is any individual who has completed postdoctoral medical training with demonstrated interest and involvement in gastrointestinal pathology. An Associate Member is any person holding a doctorate (or doctorate-equivalent degree) with an interest in gastrointestinal pathology. This membership is limited to five years and cannot be renewed. An Emeritus Member is any regular member who, upon reaching the age of 65 years, has requested this status by letter to the Secretary-Treasurer, and whose request the Executive Committee has approved. A member can also become “inactive” by requesting this status in writing to the Secretary-Treasurer. This status would be considered appropriate for a member who has become ill or incapacitated and is not presently actively practicing pathology. An inactive member would be excused from paying annual dues, but would maintain the full benefit of society membership. This status can change by request to the Secretary-Treasurer.
