How much does membership cost?

You are able to join as a member for the whole of your degree for $30 or for the year for $10. 

What's the deal with my "vote" at Council?

If you become an AMSA Member, you will be able to vote in certain instances at AMSA's Council meetings where we meet three times a year to discuss issues important to medical students. If you are present, you will be able to vote for AMSA's incoming Directors and Executive. For all other votes held at AMSA Council, your vote will be automatically proxied to your Medsoc. This means that when they vote, their vote will be worth 250 plus one extra vote for each medical student member at their university.

I thought I was automatically a member of AMSA?

AMSA has and will continue to advocate for the needs of all medical students. However, to attend our events and access some of our other membership benefits, you will need to actively sign up to become a member!
