In July, AERA announced deep discounts on Annual Meeting registration fees for individuals who join or renew as two-year members of the association. The association is also extending membership discounts to early career scholars.

For 2022, anyone who joins or renews for two years receives a $15 discount on membership dues. In addition, they will save $80 ($60 for student members) off the combined cost of 2022 and 2023 Annual Meeting registration.

The offer, which started with the opening of the 2022 renewal season on October 1, 2021, will continue to run through on-site registration at the Annual Meeting.

As a special incentive to recent doctorates and to further extend efforts to support early career scholars during the COVID-19 pandemic, AERA is also offering an early career membership discount to non-members who completed their doctorates in 2020 or 2021. AERA’s early career discount is typically a one-year discount available to graduate student members in the year following completion of a doctorate. For 2022, new members who earned doctorates in 2020 or 2021 will also pay a discounted dues rate of $115, saving $100 off the cost of regular membership. 

AERA is also providing 2021 early career members with this same benefit; that is, an additional year of membership at the discounted rate of $115 for those who renew.

Also for 2022, AERA is suspending the policy that limits eligibility for the $65 graduate student rate to students who do not work full time. The rate will now be available to all students currently enrolled in a graduate program, irrespective of their employment status. AERA Council will be reviewing the eligibility language at its mid-year meeting.

“The past two years of the pandemic have been challenging to our research community,” said AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine. “Through these initiatives, we are enhancing the value of AERA membership for scholars at all career stages. We are pleased to offer these special options for current and future members.”
