This is a reminder to keep your AAPM Membership Profile information up to date by clicking here and making any changes necessary. Please, upload your picture if you have not already done so.

Remember to review the “Conflict of Interest” area of the Member Profile to self-report conflicts per the AAPM Conflict of Interest Policy.

AAPM recognizes that not everyone is interested in every topic that we communicate to our membership, so we are now organizing our e-mail communications into “campaigns” that are typically time and event based. The first time you receive an e-mail about a particular event, you may opt out of receiving future e-mails on this topic at the bottom where it says, “To inhibit future messages of this kind, click here.” For example, if you know you aren't able to go to the 2019 Annual Meeting and don't want communications about the meeting, you may opt-out from any e-mail in the campaign, or from the e-preferences screen in your member profile.
