 Senior/Retired Membership Category

 
ASSH Active Members who are completely retired from practice, and meet all of the criteria detailed in the Change in Status Request Form, can request a move to the ASSH Senior/Retired Member category - regardless of age.
 
If your request to change to the ASSH Senior/Retired Member category is approved you have the option of choosing between:
  • ASSH Senior/Retired dues paying category (pay reduced dues of $420 rather than Active Member dues of $750); or
  • ASSH Senior/Retired non-dues paying category as described below.
ASSH Active Members over 65 (beginning with the year after turning 65) can request a move to the Senior/Retired Member non-dues paying category - regardless if still practicing.
 
Requests should be sent to Jeanne Bloesch - Membership Manager at: membership@assh.org, or fax: 847/384-1435 or mail to the ASSH Central Office.
