Society for Judgment and Decision Making

Joining SJDM, paying dues, registering for meeting, and making donations

How to join or pay dues

We have two methods:

1. A FORM: One way to become a member of the Society for Judgment and Decision Making, or to pay dues, is to download and print the membership form, and follow its instructions. Checks should be made out to Judgment/Decision Making Society in US currency and payable through a US bank.

New members: The email address you enter here will be your official address in our records (for elections, abstract submissions for the meeting, etc.). Please fill in all the fields. Please pay for this yourself. If someone does it for you, it is likely that he or she will become a member and you will not. You do not need a PayPal account. You can use a credit card. Use your own.
Current members: You must enter your member email address and name. You may leave other fields blank if you have filled them in before and they are unchanged. Do not use this form to change your email address; use this one.
Note: Paypal does not work in some countries. If you are in one of these, use the paper form.

Email for membership

When you join, you will get a password from the sjdm-members mailing list. After at most one day (if you join electronically, much longer if you join by postal mail), this password will allow you to access the members section of the web site, as well as forms for changing the information we have about you, such as your email address, or for checking your dues payments. Please use only one email address in all dealings with SJDM. For most purposes, that is how we identify you.

How to register for the meeting

The early registration fee is $360 for members, $410 for non-members, and $160 for student members. You can also join the Society ($50 regular, $15 student), or pay your annual dues. Please join now if you are going to join. It slows things down if you have to join at the meeting, and the member rate is for those who join by November 4.

The late registration fee, after November 4, is $400 for members, $445 for non-members, and $200 for student members.

For early registration, you can use a CREDIT CARD or PAYPAL: Please fill in all the fields. Members can use the button above to pay their dues, if they have not done so. You will get a receipt for registration at the meeting. We do not send a receipt by email, and neither does PayPal, but you can access the records of your account if you want to see a record of the payment.

If you pay dues at the member rate, you must be a member by the time of the meeting. If you are not, it will require extra time, including yours.
