APA Reduces Dues for Members of Other Scientific Societies

Members of APA who belong to certain other societies will benefit from a 25% dues reduc-tion starting in 1997. The APA Council of Representatives voted on this provision to reaffirm the essential role of scientists and psychological science in the Association.

Current Members, Fellows, and Associate Members will find instructions on how to take advantage of the dues reduction in the APA dues statements scheduled for mailing late in September.

Psychologists not affiliated with APA who belong to one of the identified societies are welcome to join us and take advantage of this dues reduction program. Standard member dues for APA have long been discounted for new members and, under the terms of this new option, an individual who has received a doctorate in psychology from a regionally accredited institution can join at only $37 for the first year and receive the $40 member journal credit to apply to APA subscriptions! The member dues schedule provides for 3 additional years of reduced dues before reaching full regular dues rates.

Former members of APA are invited to rejoin the Association with a special reinstatement using the 25% dues reduction. Returning members associated with the selected societies would be able to reinstate at $146 for 1997 offset by the $40 journal credit.

APA member benefits currently include subscriptions to the American Psychologist and APA Monitor; a $40 credit to be used on APA journals already discounted at up to 60% off nonmember subscription rates; up to 20% discounts on nearly 300 APA books; and special rates on APA convention registration and continuing education programs.

The 25% dues reduction is being offered to members of the following organizations: American Educational Research Association, American Psychological Society, Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, Association for Behavior Analysis, Cognitive Science Society, Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, Inter-national Society for Developmental Psychobiology, National Academy of Neuropsychologists, Psychometric Society, Psychonomic Society, and the Societies for Computers in Psychology, Judgment and Decision Making, Mathematical Psychology, Psychophysiological Research, Research in Child Development, Research in Psychopathology, and Multivariate Experimental Psychology.
