Membership Levels and Dues

Step 1:

Please use our new membership site to register or renew as a member:

As you'll see, the new member registration website is more modern, visible on all kinds of devices, and has a payment system that is integrated into the page itself. We hope this will make the process of registering as a member or renewing your membership much easier. Since this is currently a stand-alone system, it is not connected to your existing account with log-in and password. This represents phase 1 of the process of developing an entirely new website. Because the next phase of the website will not be completed until early 2017, there will be a lag in linking these two systems and in the updating of our member registry. We will eventually be bringing everyone's account over to the new system, which promises to be more straightforward and easier to maintain. We thank you for your patience as we bring our website up to date.

Step 2:

To be listed in the 2016 HIAA Membership Directory, please provide the following information:
name, institutional affiliation, mailing address, telephone/fax numbers, preferred e-mail address.
