How to Join
You can pay your SORA dues with your SSC membership, with your ASA membership, directly to SORA at any of our events, or by sending a request to email@example.com. You do not need to belong to the ASA or the SSC to be a member of SORA. Some of our members pay more than once, through both the SSC and the ASA for example; we thank them for their generosity but you only need to pay once. The annual dues are $10 for regular members and no charge for students or retired members. Please note that because of fluctuating rates of exchange and differences in membership year end, the dues requested may not be exactly the same through each route.
To receive news and notices of SORA events, please sign up for the g-sora mailing list. You do not need to be a SORA member to join to the list. You may unsubscribe yourself from this list at any time. Only the list administrators may post to the list.
