ASSET members are required to attend and present at an Annual Meeting within the first 3 years of joining ASSET. Following this, members may select one of two routes to maintain membership: attend and present at an ASSET Annual Meeting at least once every 3 years, OR attend and present at an ASSET Annual Meeting at least once every 5 years AND provide service for at least 2 years on an ASSET committee. The focused nature of our group relies on members who volunteer their time and resources on special projects, Board service, and through committee participation. Without this member involvement, we would be unable to remain a leading international resource for shoulder and elbow rehabilitation.
