Membership Program

Welcome to our Membership Portal. You can find all the information you need regarding our Membership program by visiting the links on the bottom of this page.

You do NOT need to be a Member to register for and attend our Annual East & West Coast Conference Events.

Once you have applied to become a Member, please allow up to 7 days for Membership approval. During the months of May thru August this approval time may be delayed due to the May conference and then summer as we are an organization of volunteers. However please remember that the fee is the same for the entire year (Jan-Dec) when applying for Membership no matter what month of the year you decide to join so the decision time should not affect the dues you pay.


DA4S is always welcoming Members to volunteer on our various Committees we have. If you are a Member of DA4S and are interested in volunteering your time please let us know! Email with what committee interests you.

It is at the discretion of the Board of Directors which Members are selected for which committees. Each committee can only hold a certain number of individuals so we will try our best to accommodate all requests if possible.

We are deeply saddened to share that our fellow DA4S Member, Linda Secola, tragically passed away on June 29, 2017, in a fatal accident. Linda was born in West Pennsylvania. She graduated from Newark High School, Newark, and continued her education, earning a bachelor’s degree at University of Central Florida and a master’s degree at University of Miami.
Linda’s successful career in the healthcare industry began with Pfizer where she spent more than a decade working as a District Manager in the Greater Chicago area, later becoming a National Account Manager for Parke-Davis (Pfizer). Following Pfizer, she was Vice President of Healthcare Systems at Ascend Therapeutics. In January 2008, she joined Encompass Healthcare Solutions as President where she remained until the time of her passing.
Linda was active in the supplier diversity network and within DA4S. She became a DA4S member in 2015 and was an active volunteer on the 2017 Workshop Committee, helping to create and facilitate the well-received “Eight That Innovate” workshop. Linda made a lasting impression on those she came in contact with and had a unique ability to remember names and personal details about people after only briefly meeting them. She was kind and charismatic and many will remember her pitch: “the AH HAH moment”. She was also an active volunteer with the Jimmy V Foundation and other local charities, described by friends as someone who always wanted to give, nothing was too big for her. Linda was also an avid golfer, tennis player and water skier.
Linda will be dearly missed by those who knew her. The DA4S community sends our condolences to Linda’s family. She is survived by her son, Pierce, and sisters, Elaine and Rhonda.
