When will my membership be active?
Once you have completed registration, your membership will be active. An email invitation to register for a complimentary membership will come from the Training Program coordinator. Your complimentary membership in the ACC will run through your training program.
Why haven't I received an invitation email?
Invitation emails are being sent by the Training Program Coordinator, and should come from firstname.lastname@example.org. You may reach out to them if you have any more concerns. You may also check your spam mail in case the invitation ended up there.
What do I get with my membership?
You can get discounts on education products and meeting registration fees, access to family JACC journals, complimentary section membership (http://www.acc.org/membership/sections-and-councils/fellows-in-training-section/get-involved), travel awards, chapter membership, networking opportunities, and access to the FIT section webpage and newsletter.
Continuing into advance training, do I still qualify for FIT membership?
Yes. Please contact ACC (email@example.com) and inform us of your continued training and update your member profile online. This will ensure we have your updated contact information.
Can I apply for FACC while I'm still in training?
Yes. You may apply up to six months prior to the completion of your training. However, if you apply before you pass your Board exams, and before you have a confirmed hospital and/or academic appointment, your application will remain on file with a status of “pending” until we receive confirmation that you have passed the Boards. Your application will also be considered “pending” until we have confirmed appointments. Please note you are still considered "in training" if you are pursuing advanced training.

I received a dues notice in the mail with a balance but I am still in training.
You will need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with a letter from your training program director verifying your current training program and expected end date. Please include an up-to-date home address and email.
What happens to my membership once I have completed my fellowship?
Once you’ve completed your fellowship, you will become an Associate Fellow member. You will still receive complimentary membership and access to your benefits through the end of the year. In September of that year, you will receive a special 50% discount to renew your membership for the following year. This discount also applies to new FACCs.
I haven’t been receiving my JACC journals. Who do I contact about getting that fixed?
First, make sure your address is updated in your FIT account. Then, contact ACC Member Care at email@example.com. They will resolve the issue for you.
