Frequently Asked Questions: Dues
Annual dues statements are sent out electronically via email January for the current year and are normally due by March before a $100 late fee may be incurred.
Dues are $350 for all active Diplomates, $175 for Emeritus and $200 for Board Qualified members.
The ABPM does not extend discounted fees for Board Qualified or Board Certified members, whether in full-time or part-time practice, with the following exception: Beginning in 2007, Founder and Emeritus members less than 65 years of age but with 25 years of membership or more received a reduction in annual re-registration fees.
If a member is no longer deriving income from Podiatry (i.e. retired or inactive) and can provide the Board with documentation to that affect, they may be exempt from paying re-registration fees.
Upon achieving board certification individuals are required to pay re-registration fees on an annual basis to maintain their board status.
In addition, they are required to enroll in the ABPM Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program. The program outlines the re-credentialing requirements over the duration of the Diplomate’s 10-year cycle. The new Diplomate will receive further enrollment information for the MOC program. Details and requirements of the program are available at the ABPM website. Enrollment begins the calendar year following the year in which the individual achieved board certification.
