SfN Freezes Membership Dues
For the next two years, SfN will hold individual membership dues at the 2016 rate in recognition of continued financial pressures facing many scientists and to help build greater awareness about the value of SfN membership. This decision reflects the deep recognition of challenges we are all confronting. By holding dues flat, the Society’s leadership recognizes that we all thrive when we can bring as many people into the SfN community as possible. Therefore, in calendar years 2017 and 2018, membership dues and journal publishing fees will remain flat at calendar year 2016 levels.
Your SfN membership not only helps us put on world class events like Neuroscience 2016, and publish JNeurosci and eNeuro, but also enables advocacy efforts, professional development opportunities, and public outreach, which all offer unique value for those who invest in the Society’s programs through their membership. During the last year, SfN has introduced expanded members-only programming to offer even greater value to members no matter where they are in their careers. These critical activities cannot happen without SfN members like you. Within the last year we achieved greater connections within the field through Neuronline; and, expanded our reach through global institutions, international partners and SfN chapters. Those efforts will continue to be built upon as we embark on the New Year.
Additionally, the Society affirmed its desire to recognize loyalty and encourage membership through financial incentives, which will be introduced at the start of the new membership renewal season, and will maintain substantial discounts for members on major SfN programs including journal publishing, annual meeting registration, and more. Look for more information about incentives when membership renewals open next week.
