Are Membership Dues Tax Deductible?

Membership dues may be tax deductible as a business expense.  Advocacy efforts comprise approximately 5% of the member dues rate and are therefore not tax deductible.

Do you sell educational materials?

We do have a variety of educational materials including educational DVDs on our ASE MarketPlace site.

What if I don’t receive an issue of the Journal?

Please contact us at ase@asecho.org to report your missing issues.

When does the Journal get mailed out?

Mid-month. It can take up to two weeks in the US or up to six weeks for international members.

How long is my membership?

Memberships run on a calendar year, January through December. If you join after August 31, you are considered a member for the following year. Renewal notices are mailed in October.

How do I get additional copies of ASE Guidelines?

ASE Standards and Guidelines are available on our site to members and the public for free. Please visit ASEcho.org/guidelines. If you are giving an educational presentation at an ASE educational course and would like to use information from an ASE Guideline & Standards document on your slide presentation, please be sure to include credit information at the bottom of your slides.

How is my JASE subscription handled if I join after January but before September?

If you request it, we will mail you all issues of the JASE for the current year beginning with the January issue.  Please contact us at ase@asecho.org and let us know how we can help you.

Do you sell or trade my phone, fax or email address?

ASE does not sell or trade that information from its membership database.
