Change of Status

All current members who wish to change their Membership type must submit a Change-of-Status form.

Trainee Members

When a Trainee Member either newly qualifies for Regular Membership or no longer qualifies for Trainee status, he/she may apply for Regular or Associate Membership.

Current Trainee Members wishing to transition into Regular Member status are exempt from the publications requirement if they have been a Trainee Member for two or more years and have presented two or more abstracts at past SSR Annual Meetings.

International Trainee Members are required to have presented at least one abstract at a past SSR Annual Meeting and at least one abstract at a regional meeting. Nominees must submit evidence of such participation (e.g., a reference or link to the program listing of the abstract presented at the meeting).

Early-Career Dues Option

Additionally, Trainees who were 2016 Members transitioning to Regular Member status may renew their membership for both 2017 and 2018 for the cost of a single year's Regular Membership dues. After dues payment has been made, the renewal confirmation notice will ask whether the payment is to count for both 2017 and 2018 membership, or for 2017 alone.

Please Note: Trainee Members transitioning to Regular Member status who are eligible for and request the Developing Countries discount are not eligible for the Early-Career Dues Option.

Regular Members

Regular Members in retirement with at least ten years of Regular Membership in the Society may ask the Executive Director to petition the Board of Directors to grant them Emeritus status.
