2016-2017 Membership Dues (Annual)

LSA Dues in Support of LInguistic Advocacy: The LSA is mobilizing to face a number of unprecedented challenges, among them difficulties faced by our members in conducting research due to the travel and immigration ban proposed by the Trump Administration; a threatened boycott of academic meetings in the US for the same reason, and   threats to major funders of linguistics research such as the National Endowment for the Humanities. All membership dues collected through May 31, 2017 will be set aside to support the LSA's policy and advocacy work to advance linguistics with government agencies and public officials.
