Apply for the ATSA Fellow for 2017
Bradley R Johnson, M.D., ATSA Membership Committee Chair

As Chair of the ATSA Membership Committee, I am pleased to announce the ATSA Fellow application for 2017.  Like other professional organizations, the ATSA Membership Committee and Board of Directors began two years ago to offer the ATSA Fellow, a special honorary designation to recognize ATSA members who have demonstrated allegiance to their profession and a strong commitment to the ongoing work of the Association.  A Fellow of ATSA goes “above and beyond” in regard to their dedication and contribution to ATSA.  The ATSA Fellow designation is an enhancement to their professional credentials and is recognized by their colleagues in ATSA as a member of a select group. 

Fellow applications require review and approval by the ATSA Membership Committee and Executive Board.  All newly appointed Fellows will be publicly recognized in the ATSA Forum and at the ATSA Membership Meeting and Luncheon on October 27th, which will be held this year at the ATSA Annual Research and Treatment Conference in Kansas City, MO (October 25-29, 2017).  Fellows receive a Fellow certificate that they can display with pride in their office.  Additionally, ATSA Fellows can use the initials ATSAF after their professional names to signify that they have reached this honor within the ATSA organization.

Submission Deadlines (application available at www.ATSA.com)

Self-submissions or nominations from other ATSA members should be submitted to the ATSA office by September 1st.

What are the requirements to become an ATSA Fellow?

  1. Not less than seven consecutive years as a Member or Associate Member of ATSA (Years spent as Affiliate and Student Members do not count toward the ATSA Fellow.)
  2. Two letters supporting your submission or nomination must be received from current members of ATSA describing your dedication and strong commitment to ATSA, and why you should become a member of this select group.  Letters should explain how the applicant rises to the level of Fellow, distinguishing them from a routine member of ATSA.
  3. The ATSA member should be outstanding in their field and have made significant contributions to ATSA as demonstrated by completing  at least four (4) requirements from the following list while a member of ATSA:
    • Involvement in ATSA by serving on an ATSA organization committee or board
    • Involvement in ATSA by serving in a local chapter leadership role or committee
    • Organization of or major participation in an organized activity of ATSA or your local chapter
    • Give a professional presentation (paper presentation , poster session, workshop or symposium) at an ATSA Annual Conference
    • Give a professional presentation at a local chapter conference
    • Publish a scientific or scholarly article in the ATSA journal (Sexual Abuse)
    • Publish a scientific or scholarly article in the ATSA Forum
    • Serve as an editor, associate editor or on the editorial board of the ATSA journal (Sexual Abuse) or have reviewed at least ten (10) submissions to the journal
    • Publish an article on sexual offense assessment, treatment or prevention in a peer reviewed professional journal other than the ATSA journal (Sexual Abuse)
    • Participate in furthering ATSA’s contribution to public policy for the prevention of sexual abuse by aiding with the creation of a legislative or court response or press release
    • Participate as a mentor to a less experienced ATSA member as part of the ATSA Mentoring Program for at least one year
    • Other major contribution to ATSA or local chapter that is approved by the membership committee
  4. Completion of an application that is available on line at www.ATSA.com or through the ATSA office at (503) 643-1023.

Don’t be left out and submit your application today, or nominate someone who you believe should have the ATSA Fellow designation.  If you have any questions, contact the ATSA office, or you may contact Brad Johnson at 520-297-9878 or at BJohnsonMD@comcast.net
