There are seven member types--please check eligibility before choosing a member type during member application or renewal:

  • Full: $190/year ($90/year for LMIC residents*)
  • Full + Print Subscription to Amyloid: $290/year (not available for LMIC residents)

Each new Full Member will be asked to provide the name and email address of a current Full Member who will serve as a sponsor. Renewing Full Members do not need a sponsor. Please contact ISA staff if you do not have a sponsor.

Student and Emeritus Members must provide verification of status during renewal or application (class schedule, letter from supervisor, screenshot of university webpage showing member has emeritus status, etc.).Please contact ISA staff if you have a question about verification documents.

*Discount available for those who currently reside in lower- and middle-income countries (LMICs). ISA uses the World Bank country income classification to determine which countries fall into this category. Please contact ISA staff for details and coupon codes before submitting payment for an LMIC membership.

All payments must be in U.S. Dollars. 

Please note that the ISA memberships are for the calendar year, and not a rolling year (i.e., a 2023 membership will expire on 12/31/2023 at 11:59pm CST, and a 2024 membership will begin 01/01/2021 at 12:00am CST). Questions? Email us
