Dear Fellow STP Member,
I trust that this continues to find you doing well during these challenging times due to the coronavirus pandemic. On behalf of the Executive Committee of the Society of Toxicologic Pathology, I would like to extend our thanks to you for being a member. We highly value your membership and your participation in STP!
While the current pandemic forced cancellation of the 2020 STP Annual Symposium, we were able to virtually host the annual business meeting and awards and recognition ceremony as well as offer a series of virtual CE courses and a virtual modular course this fall. I hope that you have been able to participate in these virtual presentations and courses that have been very well attended to date!
In planning ahead for 2021, I invite you to take some time to renew your membership in STP now. Please see all the relevant annual dues information below with instructions on how you may conveniently do so online. While you are indicating your preferences online, we also ask that you take a minute to complete or update your STP membership demographic information. This will greatly help the STP in better identifying member needs and interests in the future as we continue to add educational programs, modular courses, regional meetings and more in addition to the annual symposium for all members to participate in. Thank you in advance for doing so.
2021 STP Annual Dues
Full or Associate—$215 with online-only journal access; add-on charge for print journal subscription is $40.
Student—$25 with online-only journal access; add-on charge for print journal subscription is $40.
Emeritus—No dues charged (includes online-only journal access); add-on charge for print journal subscription is $75.
Online renewal: You are encouraged to renew your STP membership for 2021 online. Simply login to the renewal page with your email address (which is the same email address that was used to send you this notice) and your password. Continue to the second page where you will be able to add the optional print subscription and/or donations and proceed until completed. Select the reset password link if you need to reset your password.
Student members: Per the STP Bylaws, “both the initial application and subsequent renewal of student membership must be accompanied by a communication, either electronic or hardcopy, from the student’s supervisor or advisor to verify eligibility for continued student membership.” You may submit your student verification via email to STP Headquarters. If you no longer meet the student membership requirements, it's imperative that you update your membership type by submitting an application for current members here. The next deadline for quarterly review is October 1.
Emeritus members: Any Full Member who has retired may be designated an Emeritus member by the Executive Committee at the member’s request. Application for Emeritus status will include a statement that the member is fully retired and is not engaged for profit in toxicology or toxicologic pathology, including full-time or part-time professional consultation. It is incumbent upon members designated Emeritus to inform the Society if he or she resumes income producing work in the field of toxicology or toxicologic pathology. Should that occur, the member would revert to Full Member status, with requisite dues and privileges. If you need to update your membership type, login here to complete the quick application.
Donations: Please also consider making a donation to the STP Funds along with your dues renewal. STP has recently launched the “Focused on the Future 2025 – The STP Million Dollar Campaign,” the first-ever support drive bridging the past and future of STP. You may make a donation in recognition of a leader or mentor who made a difference for you; or you may celebrate the promise of tomorrow by giving toward training our current and future generations of tox path experts. For more information, go to https://donorbox.org/stp-donations.
Funds to apply your donation to include:
The Daniel Morton and Laura Dill Morton Scholarship Fund, greatly supporting student/trainee education and training in toxicologic pathology via a scholarship program set up in perpetuity; the Journal Fund supporting journal activities including the Best Paper Awards, page budget, and publication and distribution of INHAND Supplements; the Student Education Fund enhancing education and training of students in toxicologic pathology; the Member Education Fund supporting regional meetings, webinars, and online education for all members; the Unrestricted Fund giving the Society flexibility to support multiple strategic goals throughout the year, including the annual meeting.
If you are unable to renew your dues online or prefer to pay by a different method, you may select the "Print invoice to fax or mail with payment" link on the online renewal page. Alternatively, contact STP Headquarters to request a printable invoice that can be mailed or faxed.
By renewing today, you’ll ensure that your subscription to Toxicologic Pathology and other member benefits continue without interruption. As our journal publisher requires a 2021 mailing list at the beginning of December 2020; we will automatically renew journal subscriptions for all members who have paid 2021 STP membership dues by December 1, 2020. Should you have any questions regarding your membership, please contact the STP Headquarters at email@example.com or (703) 438-7508.
Thank you again,
Emily Meseck, DVM, DACVP, DABT
STP President 2020-2021
