The Membership Committee
is responsible for ensuring that SAEM meets the growing and changing needs of its members. The committee additionally strives to increase Society membership of academic EM faculty and residents, as well as of allied health care professionals. The objectives of the Membership Committee include:
- reviewing all categories of membership and determining whether alternative categories are required;
- monitoring and reviewing dues at different membership levels and submitting any proposed changes to membership rates to the Program and Finance committees for review;
- compiling, reviewing, and preparing a recommendation to the Board of Directors (BOD), based on input from all committees, for value-based membership recruitment objectives;
- working with SAEM staff to develop an annual schedule of assessments (at least three times a year) of faculty, resident, medical student, international, and non-physician membership numbers.
