Dues for Active Members are $250 calendar year beginning January 2020
For years The Cleveland Surgical Society has followed the traditional “academic year” of July to June for its programming and assessment of dues. The usual final meeting of the year is in May culminating with the Resident Essay Contest. Payment of dues in the Fall of the preceding year often led to confusion to the extent of dues coverage the following year especially when some members paid dues in the Spring prior to the final meeting.
Beginning January 2020, annual dues will be assessed for the calendar year January 1 through December 31. Dues notices will be emailed beginning December 1, 2019. Dues can be paid through the Society website by signing into the member portal, by the Society PayPal link, by check sent to the Society treasurer or at any of the Society meeting in January by credit card.
Cleveland Surgical Society is a 501(c)(6) organization. Dues payments are not tax deductible as a donation according to the IRS. However, dues may be deductible as a business expense. Please consult your tax advisor. If you have any questions about your membership status, please contact the Secretary/Treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org
