Membership & Officers
How to Join or Renew Your Membership
- NEAAHP membership dues are now collected online. The membership is a joint membership with NAAHP, the national professional organization.
- The annual individual membership dues correspond to the period of November 1 to October 31 of the following calendar year. The current dues are $35.00/year.
- Eligibility to join NEAAHP is restricted to duly appointed advisors (i.e., those who spend significant amounts of time advising) at undergraduate colleges and universities, or at post-baccalaureate programs (including Master’s) that act as pipelines to doctoral programs in medicine. Admissions officers or those who are members of admissions committees of doctoral programs in medicine are not eligible to join NEAAHP (or have access to the NEAAHP email listserv).
- All memberships are individual (not institutional); they are non-transferrable.
- The membership fee for new members from a community college is waived for the first year.
- You will receive a dues receipt by e-mail. Please print for your records and for proof of payment for institutional reimbursement, if necessary.
Benefits of Memberships
- You will gain access to the most up-to-date information, enhance your advising skills, and network with advisors and admissions representatives by attending the regional and biennial national conferences.
- NEAAHP members are provided access to the NEAAHP listserv, which is a private listserv for the exclusive use of advisors in the Northeast who are NEAAHP members. The NEAAHP listserv is an ideal venue for raising issues for discussion. It is restricted to advisors only in the northeast region. This listserv is restricted, unlike the national HLTHPROF listserv, which is open to anyone with membership in the National Association of Advisors for the Health Professions (advisors, admissions officers from all of the health professions, and others).
- There are many leadership opportunities, valuable for your professional development.
- Opportunities abound for making professional presentations at annual conferences.
- NEAAHP members are eligible to actively participate and vote at annual business meetings.
- Supportive attitudes, a plethora of talents, engaging personalities, and a compelling devotion to their profession by NEAAHP members have been NEAAHP’s hallmark in the past, and remain our commitment to the future.
