AAPS Membership Application
As 2017 approaches, I would like to see our membership numbers grow. To accomplish this, I'm proposing 2 incentive programs for our active members and those that have been thinking about joining.
New Members - Sign up for any membership between now and the end of 2016, and your paid membership will include 2016 and 2017. This is for new memberships only, renewals do not count. If you sign up before September 16th, you will be able to participate in our Denver meeting, receive a membership card and a few of our AAPS Photo Scales.
Active Members - Sign up new Members, Employees, Club Memberships, Youth Members and even Associate Memberships, and we will keep track of all those you sign up (please write your name at the top of each application). The member signing up the most new members will receive two free meals at our annual meeting in Tucson, or two years membership in AAPS (your choice). The contest will run until February 1, 2017. Here is a list of those new members that have joined since January 1st with their sponsor's name. Note that I have disqualified myself from this contest but did want to show you that is not that difficult to sign up new members.
|The Association of Applied Paleontological Sciences offers several Types of Membership. You can download the membership application as a PDF file. There are links below, one for the pdf file containing the application and the code of ethics, and the other for a copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader that is needed to open the file on your computer.
