ATSA Fellow Applications Open


Being a Fellow in ATSA is an honorary designation that was created by the ATSA Membership Committee and the Executive Board 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, comprised currently of about 5% of ATSA membership.

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 virtually at the 2022 ATSA Conference. Fellows receive a Fellow certificate that they can display with pride in their office and can use the initials ATSAF after their professional name to indicate ATSA Fellow status.

Submission Deadlines

Self-submissions or nominations from other ATSA members will be taken at any time and should be submitted to the ATSA office, but there is a deadline of September 12th to be included in this year's public recognition at the Annual Membership Meeting at the ATSA conference. To nominate a colleague for Fellow status, complete the ONLINE APPLICATION and arrange for 2 letters of reference to be emailed to membership@atsa.com.

Self-submissions or nominations from other ATSA members should be submitted to the ATSA office no later than September 12, 2022.

What are the requirements to become an ATSA Fellow?

  1. Not less than seven consecutive years as an ATSA Clinical, ATSA Member or previous Clinical Associate, Research Associate. (Years spent as current Associate and Student Members, or the previous Affiliate Member, 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.  Letters should not be requested from individuals who you directly supervise.
