Methods of Payment:

Please note: If the name on the PayPal account does not match the name you use on your membership profile, you must click the “Add” link next to “Add special instructions to the seller” and include your membership name. Otherwise, there is no way to link payments to the correct member.

If you are paying with a credit card through PayPal and your billing address is outside the United States, select your country from the drop-down menu near the top of the PayPal page in order to see the correct form.

Please consider adding a small fixed-amount donation to your dues payment. The donate button elsewhere allows you to give variable amounts. Selecting “Greatest Need” allows us to allocate funds most effectively. Learn more about the Reames Award and Book Prize on our Awards page.
