Membership Committee

The mission of the Membership Committee is to be in touch with the needs of ASPE members, represent the needs of membership to the Board of Directors, and to help grow the membership of ASPE in order to propel the organization.  The committee also houses the Special Interest Groups (SIGs), and participation in an ASPE SIG is one of the many benefits of membership.

Special Interest Groups (SIGs):

  • Gynecologic Teaching Associate (GTA)/Male Urogenital Teaching Associate (MUTA). 
    • Hybrid Simulation
    • Inter-Professional Education
    • Social Justice
    • SP’s Beyond Healthcare
