*A Retired ACS Fellow is an individual who has notified the College, meets the ACS definition of Retired, has been granted Retired status, and is officially listed in the ACS database as Retired. The ACS definition of a Retired member is a surgeon who is not in the active practice of providing surgical or nonsurgical patient care, participating in funded research, or performing compensated teaching or administrative duties. Questions about Retired member status should be directed to dues@facs.org.

**All nonmembers who pay the applicable Clinical Congress registration fees will have their membership application fees waived if they apply for American College of Surgeons membership onsite at the Clinical Congress.
