Alliance members at Spring 2014 meeting

Alliance Participation

In becoming a 501 (c) (6) association, the Alliance has established three classes of membership to underscore its emphasis as a clinical multidisciplinary trade association.

This new structure emphasizes that the Alliance represents clinical organizations by separating them from the other membership categories due to their authority to vote on workplan and policy issues.



Clinical Association Membership

This category includes clinical, physician and patient associations or organizations that provide voluntary financial support or in kind contribution to the Alliance. They have the power and authority to vote on the Alliance’s workplan and on the Alliance’s substantive policy positions. They include the following:
