YOUR SVS: Renew SVS Membership by End of Year

The end of the year is fast approaching, and SVS memberships are now up for 2020 renewals.

Dues invoices have been distributed to all members via email and must be paid by Dec. 31 to maintain SVS membership and access to the Journal of Vascular Surgery and SVSConnect. Statements will be mailed in early November, for those who need hard-copy invoices.

The SVS is constantly working to improve the value of membership and add new benefits. “This is an exciting time to be an SVS member,” said Membership Committee Chair Ralph Ierardi, MD. “We are offering so many exciting initiatives that are open only to members: the rapidly developing community on SVSConnect, leadership courses, a wellness initiative, mentoring opportunities and so much more.”

Membership confers many additional benefits, including, an upcoming branding initiative to position vascular specialists as the experts for the care of circulatory diseases; a growing stable of peer-reviewed publications; and clinical practice guidelines and reporting standards to facilitate exemplary patient care.
