Members, have any of you missed your most recent issue of Journal of Vascular Surgery (JVS)? If so, it could be because your 2023 Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) dues have not yet been paid.
As of Dec. 31, 2022, members with unpaid dues are considered no longer in good standing and thus unable to receive benefits—such as a free or heavily discounted subscription to JVS and, with the Vascular Annual Meeting (VAM) registration beginning in mid-March, discounted registration fees.
Membership suspensions and loss of member benefits will begin in mid-February. Other membership benefits include:
- The SVS Branding Toolkit to enhance practice development
- Advocacy and an important voice in Washington, D.C.
- Exclusive member pricing on VAM and other educational courses such as the SVS Coding and Reimbursement Workshop, the SVS Complex Peripheral Vascular Intervention Skills Course that debuted in 2022, some webinars and others
- Member pricing for the Vascular Education and Self-Assessment Program (VESAP) study tool
- The opportunity to join targeted membership sections for young surgeons, women, physician assistants and members in community practice and/or outpatient-based facilities
- Voting rights (Active and Senior only) in SVS elections
- SVSConnect, the members-only online community
- The weekly Pulse electronic newsletter
- Education and networking opportunities
- Practice management resources
- Grants and scholarships
- Career advancement through mentorship, scholarships and leadership opportunities
- The SVS job board
