Membership

Thank you for your interest in SoVerA membership. This page is for both new and renewing members to purchase a SoVerA membership. (If you are interested in donating to SoVerA, please visit the philanthropy page.)

SoVerA membership includes a variety of benefits:

  • attendance at SoVerA membership-only meetings, events, and star parties (meetings & events, calendar);

  • participation in SoVerA membership-only e-mail news and discussion lists (mailing lists);

  • membership-only registration discounts for SoVerA’s astronomy courses (courses);

  • eligibility to purchase select products at SoVerA membership-only prices (member store);

  • support of SoVerA’s mission (charter).

SoVerA membership is for the calendar year and is available at several levels:

  • Individual, $30;

  • Family, $35;

  • Student, $25;

  • Senior, $25.

New memberships begun during October 1 through December 31 include the following calendar year.

For membership, we ask for both your e-mail address and postal address for administrative purposes. We do not rent or sell this information. Both e-mail address and postal address will be shared with PayPal for the purposes of completing this transaction electronically. Your postal address is shared with the Astronomical League so that you can receive their publication entitled “The Reflector” and so that SoVerA can satisfy the contractual obligations of its liability insurance policy coverage.

If this membership is either a gift membership or a membership for a minor, please see the instructions below for joining or renewing a membership by postal mail. Also, please do not provide an e-mail address for a minor.

By joining or renewing, you will be added to two low-volume e-mail lists, including sovera-members for member-only announcements and sovera-announce for public-oriented announcements. You will have the option of joining additional higher-volume mailing lists, including sovera-chat and sovera-research.

Please select your membership category below and click on the “buy now” button in order to purchase a membership. Your e-mail address and postal address will be requested by PayPal at checkout in order to complete the transaction. For family memberships, please provide names of all family members when providing address information. Although payments are processed through PayPal, you do not need a PayPal account.

(Alternatively, if you would instead prefer to join or renew by mail, please send a check for the appropriate membership level, along with your postal address and e-mail address, to SoVerA at PO Box 102, Londonderry, VT 05148.)

Thank you for your interest in SoVerA membership! SoVerA is a 501(c)(3) organization.
