American Arachnological Society memberships are for a calendar year (January 1 to December 31). Thus, joining any time during the calendar year will only count for that year, and the membership will expire on December 31 of that year. After October 15, any membership payments made are assumed to be for the following calendar year unless the Membership Secretary, Brian Patrick (membership@~@americanarachnology.org), is contacted and told otherwise.
Membership dues paid after February 15 of any year may result in not receiving some or all hard copies of Journal of Arachnology (for non-green memberships), though online access is still available for any hard copy issues not received.
Communications from the American Arachnological Society may be received from membership@~@americanarachnology.org.

2) If you do not already have a membership profile, please create one by filling out the registration form.
3) If you already have a membership profile, you do not need to do anything more than pay for your current membership. Your profile is deactivated because your membership has lapsed.
