Senior Membership

Did You Know...

...that Senior members pay one half the Regular dues rate? APS recognizes the value of members who have supported the Society for many years and may, due to reduced income, be unable to afford full membership dues. Seniors paid only $45, the Regular member rate of $90. In addition, Senior members for whom the $45 dues causes a hardship may request in writing a complete waiver of dues.

Senior members retain all membership privileges and continue to receive Physics Today, APS News, and other Society mailings. In addition, senior members qualify for reduced registration fees at APS meetings. For example, a Senior member will pay only $60 to attend the 1999 Centennial Meeting in Atlanta, which is $165 (early registration) less than regular member registration.

To qualify, an APS member must have at least 10 consecutive years of APS membership. In addition, the member must meet one of the following criteria:

  • Reached the age of 70.
  • Retired from gainful employment.
  • Retired due to permanent disability.

If you quality for Senior membership and want to change from Regular or Fellow to Senior or Senior Fellow, please contact the membership department at (301) 209-3280 or membership@aps.org
