AAFS encourages Associate Members and Members who are eligible for a higher status to complete and submit an application for promotion. Please review the promotion requirements on the AAFS website at to determine if you are eligible. If you fulfill your section’s requirements for promotion, you may apply online by logging into your people web account. If you have forgotten your login and/or password, please contact the Membership Department at

Because of the large number of applications the committee must review in a limited time frame, the most pertinent information must be included on the application form. Additional supporting documents may be attached; however, you must complete all sections with the basic information requested. Do not write “See CV” as you will be notified that your application is incomplete.

To be considered for promotion at the 2019 AAFS Annual Scientific Meeting in Baltimore, MD, the AAFS office must receive your completed application no later than October 1, 2018. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions (
