Emeritus Members

Emeritus membership status is for ASMS members (at least 10 years consecutive membership) who have retired from the field of mass spectrometry. To convert a regular membership to emeritus membership, please contact the ASMS office (info [at] asms [dot] org). Emeritus memberships need to be kept active and renewed each year. Once a regular membership is converted to emeritus, the emeritus member may renew their membership for future years online or ask for assistance from the ASMS office.

Special emeritus member benefits include complimentary membership and annual conference registration. These special benefits are in addition to the regular member benefits listed above.
