Payment of Dues

AMS Midwest Chapter dues are $10 per year ($5 for student and emeritus members) and cover the academic year (September to September). We encourage members to pay several years of dues in advance, if possible, to reduce bookkeeping tasks.


The support of members is vital to the work of the Chapter. Dues are used primarily to cover the printing and mailing costs of the Chapter mailings. Expenses from the fall meeting in Chicago are also covered by the Chapter's general fund. Other chapter expenses are minimal as all officers work as volunteers. Expenses for the spring meeting are generally covered by the host institution.
