AANP welcomes all physicians, scientists, and advocates to become members of the Association. There are a number of membership categories, and we hope that you can find the one most suitable for you. For questions about the application process please contact the AANP Administrator or Membership Chair, Peter Pytel, M.D.
Please review the definition of membership categories below to find the one suitable for you. Please note that applications can only be made for the active and affiliate categories. AANP designates honorary and senior membership status, but current members may contact the membership committee to request a senior status. When you apply, you will need a PDF of your curriculum vitae, and a PDF of a letter from a current active member of the AANP (Sponsor letter). If you do not know the AANP members in your area, please email the AANP office for the name of a potential sponsor (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Active members shall be graduates in medicine or veterinary medicine or hold doctoral degrees in pathology or neuropathology or a related field practice. They shall have made original contributions to neuropathology or neurological sciences and have had at least four years of specialized training and/or experience in the study of diseases of the nervous system. At least two of these years must directly concern neuropathology, applied or experimental. Active members shall have full voting privileges and the right to be elected and serve as officers and councilors of the Association and to serve on committees. The current annual Active Membership fee is $350, and includes all the benefits of membership.
Affiliate members shall be in one of two categories:
Honorary members shall be exceptionally distinguished investigators or teachers in the field of the neurological sciences. They shall not be eligible to hold office or vote in the Association, and shall be exempt from the payment of dues.Senior
Senior members shall be former active members who upon retirement from active professional life have requested and been granted this status. The Executive Council shall, upon appropriate recommendation of the Membership Committee, grant such individual members “senior” membership status and exempt them from payment of dues. No member shall lose any of his previous rights by reason of any such exemption from payment of dues. They no longer have to pay dues to the Association but are entitled to all their previous membership privileges.
Application, Election of Members and Deadlines
For Active Members Seeking Senior Status:
