As members grow within the AVLS and within the field of vein care, many of them choose to take on a more active role in the organization. Our membership levels were developed to accommodate member’s needs, but also to recognize those members who are making an important impact in our field. The different AVLS membership levels are based on a member’s background, work, and level of activity within the AVLS.
Fellows of the American Vein & Lymphatic Society (FACPh) are recognized for their substantial commitment and contribution to the specialty of phlebology.
Honorary memberships of the AVLS are presented to those who have made outstanding contributions to the field of phlebology. Candidates are recommended by the Awards Committee and nominated by our Executive Committee. The entire AVLS Board votes on the nominee, and the award is presented at the Annual Congress.
