Change to Membership Dues

Beginning July 1, 2012, the annual dues for regular (Full or Associate) members will be lowered from $95 to $90 ($USD). All other dues rates remained the same.

Change to American Scientist

Dues-paying members will receive a digital version of American Scientist rather than a print edition, beginning with the July-August 2012 issue.

Canadian active members who wish to receive the paper edition may subscribe separately at the member-discounted annual rate of $20 + $8 postage ($USD). Details for subscribing will be included in your May-June issue of American Scientist-as well as through other member communications. Other information regarding American Scientist are listed below.

We hope you will continue to be a member of our chapter so that we can continue the Society’s mission to facilitate public understanding of science, enhance the health of the research enterprise and engage in transformational education.
