Watch for a change on your 2014 SLMMS dues statement. While dues for active and corresponding members remain at $330 annually, your statement will show a total of $350 to include an optional $20 contribution to the Medical Society’s charitable arm, the St. Louis Society for Medical and Scientific Education (SLSMSE).
SLSMSE supports a variety of important educational programs for the community, including:
– Awards to middle and high school students in the health and medicine category of the St. Louis Science Fair
– Education presentations for physicians such as the annual Hippocrates Lecture
– Support for community health education programs; among these are projects carried out by the SLMMS Alliance
– Support for the Missouri Physicians Health Program
Your contributions to SLSMSE are very much needed to sustain this important work. However, the additional $20 is optional and members not wishing to make the contribution may decline. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation, contributions to SLSMSE are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
SLMMS 2014 dues for other membership categories, including retired ($100 annually) and junior/student ($40 annually) will remain unchanged for 2014.
You will receive your 2014 dues statement in early October; dues must be paid in full before Jan. 1, 2014. If you have questions, contact the SLMMS office.
