Updates to Membership Categories and Dues Pricing

AMS governance has redesigned individual membership categories and dues rates to help make membership more accessible to a wider audience. These changes will take effect on August 1, 2022, for 2023 memberships and beyond. If you've already purchased multi-year memberships, these changes won't affect you until it's time to renew in the future.

Updates include:

  • lower rates for students that will not see an annual inflationary increase;
  • two new categories of Friend of Math and Regular-Medium;
  • transitioning under-utilized categories into other existing categories; and
  • some redesigned categories, including Introductory and Regular-Low

Many categories remain the same with a small inflationary increase. Unemployed members only see that increase at the highest tier, and can continue choosing a rate that fits their current budget, including \$0.

Updates are noted below. For questions or assistance, please contact Customer Service.
