As a new membership year begins, I want to thank you for your past support as a member and encourage you to join the APA for another year by renewing your membership today.

As an APA member, you will enjoy numerous benefits, including the following:

  • Discounts on registration for the 2020 APA meetings in Philadelphia, Chicago, and San Francisco
  • Eligibility for APA grants and prizes
  • Eligibility to submit papers to future APA meetings
  • A digital subscription to current and past issues of the Journal of the American Philosophical Association, as well as a discount on a print subscription to the journal
  • Print and digital versions of the 2019 volume of the Proceedings of the American Philosophical Association, featuring presidential addresses by Anita Allen, Jennifer Nagel, and Richard Arneson, as well as the 2019 APA prize lectures
  • Access to the APA Connect member community
  • Opportunities to serve in APA leadership positions, including the board, committees, and Graduate Student Council, and eligibility to vote for APA leadership
  • Exclusive discounts on products and services for academics and scholars

But your dues don’t just benefit you—they benefit the discipline as a whole. Your dues enable us to continue to serve the discipline of philosophy by conducting advocacy efforts for public funding of philosophy and the humanities, engaging in public outreach in support of philosophy, providing guidance and support for philosophers and philosophy departments in need, and creating resources such as the APA newsletters, and the APA Guide to Graduate Programs in Philosophy, the Underrepresented Philosophers Directory (UPDirectory), and the APA Department Advocacy Toolkit.

To ensure that APA membership is accessible to all, we set dues on a sliding scale. And unlike most scholarly societies, the APA’s sliding scale is not regressive—APA dues amounts are based on a flat percentage of annual income.

The success of the APA rests with our members, and we need you to help us make a difference.

Renew online today!

Thank you for your continued support of the APA. I look forward to yet another active and productive year with you as a member, and I hope to see you at our upcoming meetings!

All the best,

Amy E. Ferrer
