Smart Membership Card from American Diabetes Association

Membership cards are often one of those “high-value, low-cost” membership benefits.  American Diabetes Association has taken the membership card into the 21st century and made it a much more valuable benefit.

They send professional members (those who provide care to people with diabetes) a “smart” Professional Resource key that can be plugged into any device with a USB port.  Once plugged in, the card launches members to a site that delivers many of their membership benefits.  Benefits that can be accessed via the card include the membership directory, webcasts and podcasts, clinical recommendations, and up-to-date reports on new developments in diabetes treatment.

Of course, the card also carries information on how members can contact American Diabetes Association by phone or email, just as if it were a paper card.


This card with built-in USB connection gives professional members of the American Diabetes Association instant access to online resources.
