There are multiple ways to be involved in the MSA!

1. Participate in the Annual Meeting:

  • Attend and possibly present at our yearly annual meetings held in the fall.  Conference registration fees include membership in the MSA.  All members are also welcome to attend the general board meeting held at the end of the conference day.  We also encourage people to consider volunteering to participate in the MSA board.

2. Become a member without attending the annual meeting:

  • Interested in Sociology in Michigan but unable to attend the annual meeting?  We’d love to have you join!

    Regular membership in this Association is open to the following persons:
    (a) Those holding a bachelor’s or graduate degree or equivalent in sociology or a related field. (b) Those teaching sociology or a related topic at or above the high school level. (c) Those who are engaged in sociologically related research or practice. (d) Undergraduate or graduate students majoring in sociology or a related field.

    One becomes a member by attending the Fall Conference and paying the conference fee. Alternatively, you can mail dues to the Treasurer at other times to become a member without attending.

    Current annual individual dues are $65 per year for faculty members and other professionals and $35 for students or retired people. Benefits of membership include:

    • A subscription to the journal Michigan Sociological Review, which is published annually.

    • Networking with your fellow sociologists in Michigan.

    • Information on meetings and other news of concern to sociologists in Michigan.

    • A forum for the presentation of your research and ideas.

    • And, not least, a chance to support your profession at the state level.
