AAST Memberships run on a calendar year basis (January 1 - December 31).  We recommend all of our members choose to renew each fall or before December 31 to receive the full year of benefits in the following year. The renewal cycle for expiring members opens each fall (October 1) for the following calendar year. You are able to renew or join at any time, but it is most beneficial to renew in the renewal cycle to take full advantage of the benefits all year! AAST Memberships are non-refundable.

AAST’s Group Membership is designed for hospitals, sleep centers, and other organizations with multiple employees in the field. This new membership type enables you to purchase a bundle of AAST memberships all on one invoice. The Group Membership stays with the organization, allowing you to reallocate memberships if individuals leave the company or facility. Membership fees are 10% off for groups of 10 people or more!

Create a Group Membership

Group Memberships require a minimum of three individuals and offer the same benefits as the regular AAST membership. Once activated, members in this category act as individual members, meaning any additional purchases or add-ons belong to the account they were purchased (e.g. courses in the Learning Center, items in the Online Store, etc.). If you are interested in creating a group membership or have any questions, please contact AAST’s Membership and Operations Sr. Associate: Kayla Moor kmoor@aastweb.org.

Guest Account (Non-Membership)


AAST Guest Accounts provide access to AAST news, updates and emails, access to purchase education from our Non-Member Learning Center, register for AAST events, view our Career Center, and claim AAST-approved continuing education credits (CECs).

A Guest Account is not a membership with AAST and has limited access on the website with no member benefits. Join as a member to receive these benefits including 20 free CECs a year. Unsure if you are already signed-up? AAST HQ can assist at info@aastweb.org.
