Voluntary Dues

Diplomates with Non-Time Limited Certificates (certified before 1993) are not required to participate in Continuing Certification. However, we ask that our Non-Time Limited Certificate holders consider contributing voluntary dues of any amount to support our efforts.

These dues help to support activities such as the ABMGG Portal, certifying examinations, and the CertLink Longitudinal Assessment. You can use the secure payment link below or mail a check to ABMGG at 6120 Executive Blvd., Suite 525, Rockville, MD, 20852.
