  • Improved Filter Functionality: Refine your search and easily find the perfect match. Explore our platform today!
  • Expanded Profiles: Now featuring richer information, including the number of cases in the profile (new feature coming soon)
  • Request and Receive References: A feature that allows you to request and receive references from and be recommended by fellow specialists.

These updates aim to streamline the search process and provide deeper insights into individuals by listing referees who can be contacted for further feedback.

How Can You Get Your Own ASA Profile?

As the ASA Profiles platform continues to evolve and expand, we now offer two profile options to cater to the preferences and needs of all users. Both listing options are available with or without ASA Membership.

The first option is an extensive paid profile, displaying comprehensive information including a profile photograph, references, practical experience, panels, and publications. The second option is a free profile with limited fields, particularly beneficial for newcomers. Sign up in a few simple steps here.
