1. Am I still a member of <association name>?

Yes!  Through your membership in AAIM, you will still be a member of <association name>.  As an AAIM member, you also benefit by being a part of a larger organization with better networking, advocacy, professional development, and educational resources.  Each group within the alliance will have a representative council that will further the mission, support members, and ensure your voice is heard.

2. Will there still be a <association name> meeting/discussion board/textbook now that <association name> is part of AAIM?

Member education and networking are primary member benefits. You will continue to enjoy the organizational meetings and other services as in past years.  For example, Academic Internal Medicine Week provides an opportunity to meet concurrently with other groups, so workshops, plenaries , and othersessions are planned to be of interest to members of all five AAIM organizations, enhancing the ability to interact and collaborate across groups.

3. Will this cost me/my department/my organization more money for dues?

As part of ongoing integration efforts, the AAIM Board of Directors has approved a change to the membership invoicing process for the five charter associations in the upcoming academic year. In May 2012, membership dues will be presented on a single, consolidated invoice to the chair of the department of internal medicine. The invoice will cover all AAIM charter association--APM, APDIM, ASP, CDIM, and AIM--memberships. With a departmental payment, chairs can enroll an unlimited number of individuals in each charter association. Each individual must meet the charter association's elibitilty criteria.  View FY 2013 dues rates.

4. Will integration provide more opportunities for me to be involved as a volunteer?

An integrated alliance will not preclude you from becoming involved.  The contributions made by volunteers are vital to the success of AAIM.  After integration, you can continue to serve as a volunteer in your own organization as well as take advantage of enhanced opportunities to become involved in AAIM level activities.  We encourage all members to be vocal, visible participants as volunteers. 


5. How will I connect with my colleagues after integration?

Not only will you continue to have access to colleagues in your primary organization, an integrated alliance  will allow you to connect with colleagues in the other four constituent organizations.  This new connectivity will be supported through online technologiesas well when multiple groups meet at live events.

6. Can program/clerkship administrators be members of AAIM?

Educational and business administrators at all levels of departments of internal medicine belonging to any of the five constituent organizations of AAIM are already members of AAIM.
