ASE dues are now based upon country, with two Tiers based primarily upon economic development within the countries.
All High Income countries will be in Tier 1, and pay regular ASE membership dues, while all other countries will be in Tier 2, and pay discounted ASE membership dues. The reason for this change is to better facilitate access to the society for a larger number of members from lower income countries and to increase access to surgical education for all.
