Membership of the Reception Study Society runs for two years starting with the year of the RSS Conference (current period: 2017-2018; see also our Constitution and officers). The members receive our annual journal published by Penn State University Press, and they can pay membership and conference registration fees online. To access these features on our website, please visit the Sign in page to log into your account or create an account.

Through your account, you can currently pay the 2017-2018 membership dues and 2017 conference registration (unless you choose to mail your check or money order). After you sign in, click on the Membership link on the left, then follow the link Add new one, and choose the appropriate membership category from the list. To finish the payment online, you will need to follow the steps to the PayPal website where you can pay with your PayPal account or type in your credit card number for a one-time payment (for those who do not have a PayPal account).

Please note: setting up a new account requires activation by email.

You are always welcome to renew your membership or pay the conference registration by mail: please send us a check or money order to the address below:
