Frequently Asked Questions
COMING SOON

I'm a current AACE member, and I need to renew for 2021. Why did our membership model change?

On October 20, 2020, we launched a transformed AACE brand and community. We are committed to building a community that is more inclusive to the broader clinical endocrinology team – who are looking to endocrinologists for expertise and collaboration to strengthen their clinical knowledge and skills, and improve the care provided to the patients we all serve. Our community welcomes three main categories of participants: endocrinologists (as leaders), health care professionals and endocrine care advocates. Read more.

Is this new community engagement fee in addition to membership dues?

No. We have moved to a new community engagement model that only requires an annual fee from participants. This annual fee replaces previously required membership dues.

Can I join the community if I'm not an endocrinologist?

Yes. Our community offers eligible individuals the opportunity to fully participate in our new engagement model with the associated benefits, and we welcome those who support our mission of elevating clinical endocrinology. Participants can include but are not limited to: MDs, DOs, DPMs who spend less than fifty percent (50%) of their work time in the treatment of patients with, or involved in research or educational activities relating to endocrine disease; physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, dieticians, diabetes educators, pharmacists; fellows-in-training/residents/students; patients, public, industry partners and more.

What happened to the previous AACE member categories, and how do I know which tier to join if I'm already an AACE member?

All membership categories remain in place per bylaws (Active, Retired, Emeritus, Fellows, etc.). Voting rights, board service requirements, committee privileges, etc. do not change. If you are a current AACE member at the Active level, you can rejoin into either tier. Fellows, residents and students can join the Engaged tier for $50. Retired members can join the Engaged tier for $160. And Emeritus and Past President categories still receive a complimentary community membership. If you are a current AACE member with FACE distinction, please be sure to read the updated FACE requirements to maintain your status.

Other details you may need to know

The following applies to current member categories and our expanded community: Community fees and FACE program fees are due at time of renewal. Community members will receive notice 90-days in advance of renewal date; non-renewals will be dropped at the end of that period. Multiple year fee payments will not be permitted in 2021 and beyond. Upgrades in tiers mid-cycle are permitted (Informed to Engaged). Downgrades are not permitted except during the next renewal cycle (Engaged to Informed). Only Engaged Tier members may serve as chair/vice chair of committees, task forces and workgroups.
