Your Invitation to Join
The DC Chapter, ACS would like to invite you to become a member of one of the most progressive and active chapters in the country! It's your membership that will continue to let the Chapter focus on important issues facing DC-area surgeons.
With your DC Chapter membership you will receive outstanding member benefits such as E-News, our monthly email which features articles on current topics, member news, and event information. Members also have access to a newly designed DC Chapter website with a completely new look, streamlined navigation, and special areas for surgeons and consumers, as well as an online expanded membership directory.
Introduced as a member benefit to boost the awareness of DC Chapter Fellows, the "Find a Surgeon" feature is available on the front page of the DC Chapter website. Using this feature affords all visitors to the website the ability to locate a surgeon in their area. As the DC Chapter, ACS is a common source for DC surgery inquiries, what better place to find a surgeon who takes their profession seriously?
