Reminder – ASPR Membership Dues Increase Effective January 1, 2014

ASPR is proud to offer its members a broad array of high quality professional and educational benefits. In order to continue to provide our members with these benefits and to cover our increasing administrative costs, the ASPR Board of Directors has approved an annual dues increase of $25. The dues increase will take effect on January 1, 2014 bringing annual dues to $275. Your membership renewal will continue to be on a rolling basis throughout the calendar year, so the increase will affect you at your individual time of membership renewal in 2014.

The ASPR Board of Directors makes every effort to remain fiscally responsible and to maintain low costs for membership. The Board has been able to keep annual dues constant over the last several years, but has determined that an increase at this time is necessary to be able to continue to bring you all of the benefits that you deserve.

If you have any questions, please email We thank you for your continued membership and look forward to a great year in 2014!
