Please note: Your membership and subscription to the journal will not be considered active until your payment has been received and processed.

I belong to a local or school chapter. How does that work?

Please note that if you are joining a chapter--either an existing one or one that you are creating--half of your dues are paid to the PLG chapter you join and half get sent to PLG. If you are a regular member, $10 stay with the chapter and $10 get sent to PLG. If you are a student or low-income member, $5 stay with the chapter and $5 get sent to PLG.

If you belong to a local/school chapter that collects dues, pay your dues to the chapter. You will still register through the membership management portal above. Select the "Paid via Chapter" option when prompted to choose a membership level. The representative from your chapter managing dues should send payment for your chapter, along with chapter member names, to our mailing address:
