Benefits of your ASET membership
17, Jan, 2024
ASET members have many benefits available to them. As a refresher we’ve prepared this article to help you understand what your membership brings you.
Let’s begin with the ASET Career Centre. Whether you’re actively searching for a job or just curious as to what’s out there, our job dashboard can help. It provides postings from companies specifically after the exemplary abilities and expertise of engineering technology professionals, meaning you can be assured that your credentials are appropriately recognized.
The centre also features resources you can use for career development, like curated advice articles, learning resources, and a connector sharing continued professional development opportunities. You can additionally take the ASET Salary Survey. Take this survey once a year to find out how your salary compares to other ASET members’ and greater market trends.
Speaking of your career, digital signature services are becoming more commonplace. To keep pace, ASET has partnered with electronic and digital signature expert Notarius to provide the ASET Digital Signature to members. You can use the signature to create electronic originals and authenticate finalized documents. The digital signature uses proven technology solutions that meet government standards and best archiving practices for electronic documents.
ASET offers insurance programs as well. The ASET Home and Auto Insurance Program is underwritten by The Personal Insurance Company. The plan offers features like exclusive rates to save you money, additional discounts and savings, expert advice from a team of licensed insurance pros, and emergency support. That support includes 24/7 claims assistance and calling from the scene of an accident anywhere in North America. Adding to this program are office, professional liability and health insurance plans. Visit the ASET Insurance Program page today to learn more about these plans, and get a few free quotes!
Exclusive insurance rates aren’t the only way your membership can save you money. You can find a range of corporate discounts available to you on the ASET Corporate Discounts page. Professional, travel, retail, and cell phone discounts are all available to you.
When it comes to professional perks, ASET has worked with partners to provide members with legal services and benefits. Law Firm MLT Aikins has an arrangement with ASET whereby the firm will provide an hour of free legal advice to ASET members. Advice can include anything covered by a member’s professional liability insurance. This arrangement was made to ensure you have early access to legal advice for free whenever a claim seems possible or likely. Another legal service available to you comes from a partnership we have with Lypkie Henderson Barristers and Solicitors. ASET members receive a 25 per cent discount on estate planning and estate administration (grant of probate) services.
Finally, every ASET member receives our quarterly magazine, Technology Alberta. In its pages you can find features on amazing new technologies in Alberta and beyond, important membership updates, inspiring stories of your fellow members, and more.
At ASET, we strive to incorporate as much value into your membership as we can. That means you can expect new benefits to pop up in the future, to support you on your certified technology professional journey.
