Membership is open and available to anyone, anywhere in the world, that is interested in the perfusion profession. The commitment required is the payment of annual dues of $155. This provides participation in all activities of The Academy, including the opening business meetings, and provides one an opportunity to develop the skills of participation, investigation, paper writing and presentation by association and participation in perfusion education. There are no other binding requirements of participation as with some other areas of membership.
Members may apply for Fellow Membership after having been a Member in good standing for three years. It is not necessary to have three Fellow Members nominate and second this application, but must proceed through the Membership Committee, Council and The Academy in the same manner as prescribed for direct Fellow Membership application. This category provides the majority of individual nominated to Fellow Membership.
