ASET - The Neurodiagnostic Society is the largest national professional association for individuals involved in the study and recording of electrical activity in the brain and nervous system. Organized in 1959, ASET's mission is to provide leadership, advocacy and professional excellence for our members, creating greater awareness of the profession and establishing standards and best practices to ensure quality patient care.
Members include technologists, students, physicians and institutions involved in EEG, evoked potentials, polysomnography, nerve conduction studies and related neurodiagnostics. As a membership organization, ASET advances the neurodiagnostics profession by:
serving member needs
defining and endorsing standards of practice
providing innovative educational opportunities
promoting the profession; and
building coalitions with other allied health organizations and communities of interest.
ASET is a volunteer, not-for-profit entity organized under section 501(c) 6 of the IRS code. It is incorporated in the state of Alabama and maintains headquarters in Kansas City, MO, with a paid professional staff of six and one contract personnel. The Society governance structure includes a policy-making Board of Trustees, committees and task forces common to most professional societies.
