SDMS Announcements

Special Edition: SDMS President's Message - June 2017

by Sheryl Goss

The SDMS is committed to being your best career resource and we are continually evaluating our membership offerings and structure to achieve this goal. After extensive research and feedback from our members, I am pleased to announce the following enhancements.


SDMS Standard Membership
SDMS Active, Associate, and Supporting Member categories are being replaced with the SDMS Standard Membership category. The SDMS Standard Membership category is available to individuals practicing in the field of diagnostic medical sonography. SDMS Standard Members will continue to enjoy unlimited access to SDMS CME opportunities and many more SDMS member benefits.

SDMS Retired Membership
Available to individuals age 60 and older, if you no longer need access to CME credits, the SDMS Retired Membership category allows you to remain connected with a 50% discount on dues.

SDMS Organizational Membership
Replacing the SDMS Corporate/Business/Institute (CBI) Membership category, the SDMS Organizational Membership will provide graduated discounts and benefits based on the tier level selected.

Note: With the implementation of the new membership types and discounts (outlined below), the grace period for paying SDMS membership dues after expiration will be eliminated. As of June 2017, if your dues payment is received by the SDMS after your expiration date, your SDMS join date and membership tenure will be reset when you rejoin the SDMS in the future.


Loyalty Discount for SDMS Standard Members
We heard you! To thank our renewing members for their continued loyalty, we will be implementing a 5% discount program for SDMS Standard Members who renew before their membership expire. This loyalty discount program will begin with SDMS Standard Members expiring on August 31, 2017.

Multi-Year Membership Discounts for SDMS Standard Members
Buy a two or three year SDMS Standard Membership and save! For a two-year membership, you will pay $145 per year ($290 total) for a savings of $30. For a three-year membership, you will pay $140 per year ($420 total) for a total savings of $60.

Note: Membership discounts cannot be combined (e.g., a multi-year membership is not eligible for the 5% loyalty discount.) SDMS Student, Graduate, and Retired Memberships are already reduced from the Standard Membership rate of $160 and are not eligible for further discounts.

Thank you for being an SDMS member. We appreciate your support and dedication to the sonography profession. If you have any questions, please contact the SDMS Membership Department at +1 214-473-8057 or 1-800-229-9506 or email:
