ASE GEM Recognition Program

Everyone likes to feel appreciated.

Everyone likes to feel valued.

Everyone likes to feel connected to a supportive community.

Active members of ASE are encouraged to recognize their peers as a GEM for Going the Extra Mile (GEM). Whether it’s for their dedication to the field of cardiovascular ultrasound, being an outstanding mentor to students or fellows, their commitment to quality patient care, going above and beyond in the past month, a milestone service anniversary, or congratulating them on a major accomplishment. No matter what reason, it is always worth recognizing your peers.

It’s simple to recognize your colleagues:

  1. Log in to your Member Portal.
  2. Click on the Membership tab at the top.
  3. Click on GEM Recognition (Members Only).
  4. Fill out the form.

The deadline for submission is the 27th of each month to allow for time for recognition the following month.

After your submission, the person you recognize as an ASE GEM will receive an email from the ASE President within two business days recognizing their GEM status. ASE GEMs will also be recognized on this web page, on social media, and monthly in the ASE Echo News weekly eNewsletter.

ASE Headquarters – COVID-19 Update

Beginning March 26, 2020, the county where the ASE Headquarters is located is under a government order to “Stay at Home” due to the spread of the coronavirus. These “Stay at Home” recommendations continue to be in effect and depend on the infection rates in the County/State. ASE will keep all but essential personnel telecommuting until a time when it is judged safe to return to work. We are not suspending or closing operations; our employees will remain working and providing excellent customer service to our members and the cardiovascular ultrasound community.
