Membership Levels:

Membership in the national society and local chapters are separate – you will need to join both (unless there is no local chapter for your area). Your membership begins the day you join and expires on December 31 of that year. Dues are non-refundable. AAHGS does not automatically renew a membership upon expiration. Members are notified before their expiration date and given the opportunity to renew.

We offer several levels of membership: Individual ($35), Family ($40) and Organization ($45). A family membership includes you and one other person. Organization memberships apply only to the individual who is the representative of the organization. We also encourage lifetime memberships ($1,000) and bequests to our endowment fund.
