As a new graduate preparing to enter the field of audiology as a professional, you are sure to shop around for the Association that is going to give you the biggest bang for your buck. You want the best representation while leaving you some cash to help with student loans.
At the Academy, we understand this challenge and have developed a graduated dues system to show support for new audiologists. Once you have graduated with your doctoral degree in audiology, successfully completed a national exam and/or received your state audiology license, you can upgrade your membership to Fellow status. When you upgrade, you pay NO ADDITIONAL DUES for that year. IT'S FREE! This usually means at least half a year of free Fellow membership since most students graduate in the summer.
When it comes time to renew for the next year, the Academy grants a $110.00 discount for first-year graduates followed by a $70.00 discount for second-year graduates. The best part is that your money goes to the only organization of, by, and for audiologists. Go ahead; shop around and see if you can find a better deal.
Are you ready to upgrade? Simply fill out an Upgrade Application either online, or if you prefer as hard copy , sign the Code of Ethics, attach a copy of your Praxis scores or a copy of your audiology license, and mail it to the address on the application. For the quickest processing, you can fax it to 703-790-8631
