New Members to ASA can join and receive two years for the price of one!

Offer Ends September 30 . . .join today!

I am writing you today with a special offer to encourage you to join the American Sociological Association. While membership is usually on a calendar year basis and joining now would mean your membership would only be active through December 31, 2011, for a limited time we are offering a special extended membership that will be active through December 31, 2012. (Offer expires September 30, 2011 and is valid only for online application.)

Log in to the online membership system using your ASA ID and password. At the final payment page, enter promotion code PROMEM1112 and our membership team will extend your membership and journals in the ASA database through 2012. (Any section memberships will be valid for 2011 only.)

Your membership will be valid from the day you join until December 31, 2012. You will receive any remaining 2011 issues of your journals and newsletters, plus a full compliment of issues for 2012! While printed back issues will not be sent for 2011 issues published prior to your renewal, you will receive online access to all online issues of any journal you purchase with your membership effective immediately (and through the end of 2012). As an added bonus, if you subscribe to at least two ASA journals, you will receive online access to all ASA journals!

Taking advantage of this special offer also means you will avoid any increases in dues and journal prices in 2012.

Joining online gives you immediate access to other member-only services and benefits including:

l        ASA Online Job Bank: Members receive free access to the online Job Bank. Members can search employment opportunities by geographic location, specialties, and salary, and can add their own curriculum vitae to the online database (which is accessible by employers with current listings in the job bank).
l        Members receive deep discounts on books, teaching materials, and merchandise in the ASA online bookstore--with a new edition of the ASA Style Guide, an expanded selection of merchandise, and even e-books for immediate access.
l        Receive special member discounts on books from our publishing partners, including SAGE Publications.
l        New in 2010 is TRAILS, the ASA Teaching Resources and Innovations Library for Sociology, available to ASA members for only $25 for a full year. With over 2,700 peer-reviewed resources in more than 70 subject areas, TRAILS is the place to find fresh ideas for your classroom.  It's also the perfect place to publish your own teaching and learning innovations.
l        Enjoy member discounts on an expanded array of new Affinity Benefits, including lodging, travel, home/auto/health insurance, rental cars, and office supplies.
l        ASA's 2012 Annual Meeting will be held August 17-20, 2012, in Denver. More than 500 regular and special sessions are scheduled, many focusing on ASA President Erik Olin Wright's meeting theme, "Real Utopias." ASA members receive significant discounts on registration and other meeting services.
l        Footnotes, ASA's newsletter, is published online nine times a year. It contains feature stories, calls for papers, meeting calendar, funding opportunities, obituaries, policy developments on the Washington and international scenes, and summaries of ASA Official Reports and Proceedings. In 2012, Footnotes will return to being automatically mailed to ASA members (in addition to the online version). For the remainder of 2011, you may opt-in to receiving a printed version when joinng.
l        Members receive access to the Member-Only Area of the ASA website, with access to premium content including the ASA member e-mail directory, full-text versions of syllabi set, and member-only discount coupons. Members also receive the new monthly e-newsletter, ASA Member News & Notes, with quick links to new member-only content and important news and updates.

Log in to the online membership system using your ASA ID and password. At the final payment page, enter promotion code PROMEM1112 and we will extend your membership and journals in the ASA database through 2012. (Any section memberships will be valid for 2011 only.)
