Most WSOMS members are Active, Associate, Affiliate, or Resident.
But wait, there's more. (:
According to the Bylaws, there are seven classifications of membership:
The WSOMS is not designed to replicate what state and national organizations already provide. We offer specialized complementary services critical to the success of our membership states
Legislative Klout: WSOMS District IV is a dynamic and influential legislative presence. Time and time again, this authority has proved absolutely critical in warding off threats to the interests of our professions within the seven member states. Individual states just don't have the same klout or success record.
Connections: WSOMS events and mailings provide you with a district-wide stable of excellent referrals for your patients. Check out our Resources page. Our online and email presence is low key and professional, offering a unique perspective to what you already receive from state organizations and the AAOMS.
Continuing Education: WSOMS offers quality programs and presentations in fabulous locations. Our presenters are the best in the field. Our annual meetings provide opportunities you won't find anywhere else.
Great Times: WSOMS conferences are as entertaining as they are educational. You'll enjoy sporting events, parties, informal gatherings and lots of family-friendly options. Check out the annual meeting this July or a few of the places we've already been.
Low Fees: WSOMS membership is just $175 per year. It's a ton of of legislative bang for very little buck. There's really no good reason NOT to join WSOMS.
