Frequently Asked Questions on PSA Membership and Registration rules:
Q) Who has to pay membership?
A) Any sociologist (faculty, student, applied/public/etc.) who resides in the PSA region (Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Baja California, Sonora, and Chihuahua) and whose name will be listed in the 2015 Annual Meeting Program (as a presenter, presider, discussant, panelist, session organizer, etc.). Note: To be eligible for possible PSA travel grants, students who are presenting at the Meeting must be current members of PSA, and have prepaid registration fees. Information on the process to apply for these travel grants will be posted in January.
Of course, we encourage everyone to become a member of PSA--and gain the benefits of this membership, including receipt of our journal, Sociological Perspectives, and the PSA newsletter, The Pacific Sociologist, as well as the right to vote in PSA elections, and eligibility for PSA offices and committee memberships.
Q) Who does not have to pay membership?
A) 1. Sociologists who reside in the PSA region and want to attend the Annual Meeting but whose names will not appear on the Program. These folks can simply pay Registration if they choose.
2. Sociologists who do not reside in the PSA region, but whose names will appear on the 2015 Program (as presenters, presiders, panelists, etc.). These folks can simply pay Registration if they choose.
3. Those whose names are on the 2015 Program but who are not sociologists.
Q) Who has to pay Registration?
A) Everyone who attends the Annual Meeting. The one exception is for participants who are invited by Program Committee session organizers to be part of a specific session (not the general Meeting) and who are not sociologists.
Note: A limited number of Registration Waiver Grants will be available for students who are not presenting or listed on the program. Watch for information on the application process in January.
