When ASAM members pick up their Annual Conference registration materials, they are encouraged to also visit the ASAM Central Desk next to Registration to enter a raffle and complete their membership profiles.

During the conference, ASAM is giving away five complimentary 2016 ASAM memberships, but to be eligible, members must have completed their Membership Profile. ASAM also will seek feedback from members about the Annual Conference. At the end of the conference, ASAM will survey all meeting registrants to determine ways to improve future conferences and educational meetings.

ASAM staff will ask members to complete a two-minute survey using iPads to get feedback on communication preferences for late-breaking news, upcoming events, and educational opportunities. Some members prefer to receive printed material, while others prefer electronic communication, so the Society wants to ensure that it is meeting the needs of members.

In 2014, ASAM began accepting Associate Members, who are professionals who teach, conduct research, or provide clinical care for those at risk for substance use disorder or who have a substance use disorder.

An Associate Member Roundtable session, “What Keeps You Up at Night?” will allow these members to learn from each other by sharing challenges and successes. The session will be presented from 7:45 to 8:45 pm Friday in Governor’s Ballroom E, Fourth Floor. The session will include small group discussions with other addiction professionals to discuss shared topics and issues of interest.
