Membership Rates

PSA Membership Rates vary according to membership category and country of origin. Reduced rates are available for multiple year and youth memberships.


Join PSA

PSA membership begins the month the member joins and continues through that year. For example, someone joining in April has a one year membership through March of the following year.

This link will take you through the steps of joining PSA. If you do not want to join online, consider downloading a printable pdf of the membership application and mailing it in.


PSA Refund Policy

The PSA Membership fees are not to be treated as a Journal subscription.  The membership fee entitles the payer to the full range of PSA Member benefits for the membership period. It is standard PSA policy not to refund payments, for which a membership has been processed, a membership ID provided and access to services and all benefits enabled.  The standard membership term is for one year and will be maintained as an active membership for that period.  In those cases where a member has erroneously made multiple payments for the same period of membership, the additional payments may be refunded or, if the member agrees, used to extend the base membership.
