Hurry! Renew your ACU membership by October 15 and you will be entered to win this pocket sized Flip Video Camera to take with you wherever you go!

It is membership renewal time – most ACU memberships expire at the end of 2012. Since no one wants to receive (or send) renewal reminders over the holidays, we are offering an incentive for those who renew early. Don’t worry — since ACU membership is based on a calendar year, we won’t cut short your benefits if you renew before your membership expires.

Here are 13 more reasons — a baker’s dozen — to renew your membership now:

  1. Networking – a directory of ACU members in your community and a new Audio Story Bank
  2. Jobs and career advice in the ACU Career Center­
  3. Daily updates – via Facebook and Twitter
  4. Savings such as members-only conference rates, including ACU’s Health IT for the Underserved Conference in March 2013.
  5. Scholarships – to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI)  Open School or annual conference
  6. Opportunity to publish in the Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved
  7. TobaccoFree and a new mobile app to measure nicotine dependence (coming soon)
  8. Journal of Health Care for the Poor & Underserved, 4 issues plus supplements
  9. Clinician & Community,  monthly e-newsletter
  10. An ACU wall calendar with culturally appropriate health messages for your home or office
  11.  Representation in Washington on health policies that affect you and your patients
  12.  Leadership opportunities via the ACU Committees
  13.  Tax deduction – as a charitable organization, your ACU dues are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
