AUA Membership Application Cycle
Active and Associate Members
Practicing Urologists in North America
The AUA elects members at each of our three yearly Board of Director’s Meetings. These meetings take place in February, April or May (depending on the date for the Annual Meeting), and October. For example, if you submit an application along with all of your required documents in July, you will not be nominated for membership until the October meeting. Below you will find a diagram of the Active and Associate membership application cycle.
Submit your completed AUA membership application along with your annual membership dues payment.
The AUA will forward your application to your designated AUA Section to whom you'll submit the Section application fee, a copy of your CV, and proof of your board certification (if you are applying for Active membership).
Upon submission of all required application documents, you will become a "Member Elect". The AUA will provide you with your AUA # and password so that you can access your AUA member benefits including The Journal of Urology® and the AUA Core Curriculum.
The Section will elect you to Section membership at their Annual Meeting (the dates of the meeting vary by Section).
The Section notifies the AUA that you have been elected to Section membership, and then the AUA nominates you for National AUA membership.
Your name is presented to the AUA Board of Directors for election to membership in the AUA.
You will be notified, via email or letter, of your election to AUA membership and you will be elevated from Member-Elect to the Active or Associate membership status.
