Join Your Local ACS Chapter
We encourage all ACS Fellows to support our local activities by joining the Oregon Chapter. Click HERE for info.
Dues provide a lot of benefits such as social events, education, CME opportunities, and advocacy. First, our Chapter joins with the Washington Chapter to produce a fantastic combined ACS Oregon-Washington Annual Meeting.
Also, the ACS Day at the Capitol and Winter Council meeting well be held on Sunday followed by a dinner with a guest speaker. Legislative affairs training and visits with legislators at the Oregon Capitol will be held on Monday. All members are invited to the dinner on Sunday and Monday morning for the Day at the Capitol meeting.
Also, the Portland Surgical Society (PSS), a long-standing institution in the Portland area, has merged its operations with our Chapter. We invite you to join PSS. If you live in the tri- county Portland area or Clark County, WA dues are $250. Dues for retired non-practicing surgeons are $125. Dues to PSS are pre-payment for four quarterly dinner meetings and one annual banquet with a scientific session and CME hours.
Your Chapter dues help us to provide these great programs in Oregon, and we encourage all members to participate in the chapter in other ways.
