Assistants Dues Renewal

Not sure when to renew? Find the category that applies to you and read on for details and due dates.


C-AA and C-SLPA holders and applicants who applied prior to April 15, 2021

Thank you for being a pioneer of the Assistant Certification Program! Please renew your dues by December 31, 2021, in order to stay current. Take a look through your ASHA benefits to find out how your affiliation with ASHA can help you in the new year. 

C-AA and C-SLPA holders and applicants who applied on or after April 15, 2021

No renewal needed this year! Your application fee covered your 2021 and 2022 dues. That means you do not need to renew until December 31, 2022. Take this opportunity to review your ASHA benefits to see how your affiliation with ASHA can help you. 


We will be bidding a fond farewell to the Associates Program to make way for the Assistants Certification Program. 2022 will be the last year of the Associates Program, which means this is your last opportunity to renew your Associate affiliation. Instead of renewing your Associate’s membership for 2022, we suggest applying for audiology assistant or SLPA certification in the new year. In doing so, you’ll keep access to all of the awesome ASHA benefits you receive in the Associate’s Program, plus the additional benefits of certification [PDF]. 

Letting your associate’s membership lapse at the end of this year is totally fine if you intend to apply for certification. You will not be penalized in any way for not holding current affiliation when you submit your assistant application. In fact, waiting to apply for assistant certification until 2022 will help stretch your dollar. If you apply after January 1, 2022, your application fee will cover your affiliation through the remainder of 2022 PLUS all of 2023. 

If you’re a current CSD student, or are planning to return to an SLP master’s or AuD program, and are not eligible for or interested in assistant certification, we encourage you to pursue National NSSLHA Membership if/when you’re eligible.
