Types of Membership
An active member is a person whose primary profession is one that works for or directly supports a radiation oncology service provider. Active members have all the privileges of membership, including making motions, voting, serving on committees and holding office.
A contributing member is a person who is not eligible for active membership but who wishes to contribute toward the goals of SROA, such as those employed by consulting and commercial firms that offer products and services directly relating to oncology. Contributing members may not make motions, vote, or hold office, but they enjoy all other benefits of membership; i.e., serve on committees.
A retired member is a person who has been an active SROA member for at least 5 years, at least 55 years of age, is retired from the Radiation Oncology profession, and cannot qualify for any other membership category. Retired members will have all the privileges of membership, excluding the ability to make motions, vote and hold office.
A Special Member is a person who is a citizen and resident of a country classified as Low Human Development as identified by the United Nations. [Refer to the most current United Nations Human Development Report, Human Development Index for a list of countries.]
The Board may, in its sole discretion and by a two-thirds (2/3) vote, confer honorary membership upon any person who has rendered distinguished service to SROA. Honorary members may not make motions, vote, or hold office, unless they are also active members, but they enjoy all other benefits of membership.
Annual Membership Dues are established by the Board of Directors.
The membership year is January - December. SROA does not pro-rate dues.
Current annual dues for Active Members: $200; for Contributing Members: $275; for Special Members: $25; for Retired Members: $65.
