We are a membership organization for Illinois anesthesiologists, unified with ASA, focusing on furthering patient safety and the practice of our discipline through education, representation and advocacy for our members. We also provide our member physicians with opportunities to connect as a community through events and networking opportunities.
Members also have the opportunity to help shape the future of our organization and discipline by participating on committees – and connect with other physicians from around the state.
The American Society of Anesthesiologists requires dual membership with the state component societies. Membership dues are collected for both organizations by ASA. Join us!
