Join or Renew Membership

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in social insects. While the North American Section is principally intended to serve Canada, Mexico and the United States, we happily accept members from other countries. However, we do encourage interested individuals to explore whether there might be a section closer to them that could better serve their needs.

Please renew membership annually at the start of each calendar year.

  • Full-time students at any educational institution qualify for the student rate.

Donations are welcome and appreciated! If you like, you can include a donation for any amount above the amount owed for your membership. These funds can be directed toward the Eickwort Award (general award), the Nutting award, the La Fage award, the Tschinkel award, or the Jeanne award. You may also donate funds to the IUSSI-NAS general fund.

Paypal does not offer a way to automatically transfer information from our membership form to its payment website because we are registered as a non-profit accepting donations.
