An Explanation of Your ACP Dues Invoice
Dues are based on your membership class (listed on your dues bill) and years since medical school graduation (if applicable). ACP recognizes that members may have special circumstances that require a reduction in their dues (e.g., physicians that are disabled, retired, or working part-time). For information on member classes and specific dues rates, please visit our dues page. If you have questions, you may contact us at www.acponline.org/contact.
Your dues are allocated to several specific entities: ACP, ACP Services, and your local chapter (where applicable). Full payment of dues is required in order to maintain ACP membership in good standing. Total dues owed are subject to change annually.
You are encouraged to consult with your tax advisor to review the tax implications associated with your dues.
ACP is a 501(c)(3) organization. The portion of your dues allocated to ACP nationally is earmarked for education, information, and publications - all of which support the College's mission. In addition, a subscription price for members who receive ACP print publications is a component of your national dues. Subscriptions cannot be deducted from dues.
ACP Services is a 501(c)(6) organization. The portion of your dues allocated to ACP Services is earmarked for lobbying and advocacy as well as other business and non-charitable functions and is not deductible as a charitable contribution for U.S. federal income tax purposes. For information on the activities that fall within ACP Services, please visit www.acpservices.org. A portion of your dues allocated to ACP Services may be deductible as a business expense.
If you reside in an area where there is an ACP chapter, or if you are a member of the military, a portion of your dues is allocated to your local or military chapter.
Members living outside of the United States pay discounted dues and are not eligible for additional discounted dues. Members living outside of the United States may choose a dues option that includes print publications or may choose to receive online-only access to ACP publications. For information on dues rates for international members, please visit our international dues page.
Fellowship Initiation Fee
A one-time fee of $175 is charged upon election to Fellowship.
Professional Association Discount
If applicable, your ACP national dues may reflect a 10% discount in recognition of a joint arrangement that the College has with your other professional medical association.
*Note: You are encouraged to consult with your tax advisor to review the tax implications associated with your dues.
