The cost of renewing IPA membership for 2015 (for our Full and Student members, who renew each year) will remain the same as in the past – 45 EUR for Full and 22.50 EUR for Student members.
As always, a benefit of membership is a subscription to the Association’s Journal. For 2015, all members will receive print issues of the Journal, as before. In addition, all members will have online access to the Journal – not only to the 2015 volume, but also to all the back issues, back to 1971. Many members already have this access through their institutions, but now all members will have it, via the members-only part of our forthcoming new website. This combination of print+online access at no extra charge will be offered only for 2015; beginning in 2016, we plan to introduce different membership fees for different kinds of Journal subscriptions.
Another benefit of membership in 2015 is a reduced registration fee for the upcoming International Congress of Phonetic Sciences, to be held in Glasgow 10-14 August. While the registration fees for the Congress have not yet been announced, IPA members will receive a discount of 30 GBP for Full members and 20 GBP for Student members. In order to receive this discount, membership dues for 2015 must be paid by February 1.
