How to Become a Member

There are different individual membership options that vary by length (2, 4 and 6 years) and type (full or reduced). The longer you join for the bigger the discount. Also to save money, reduced options are recommended. Reduced memberships provide the same benefits as full memberships except that full members receive a subscription to the print version of the Journal of Cultural Economics. Those on reduced memberships are able to request complimentary e-access to the journal and may contact the Executive Secretary/Treasuer to organise this if required.

Membership is on a calendar year basis, so for example, if you take out a 2-year membership in September 2022 that would expire the same date as if you took out a membership in  January 2022, i.e., the expiry date would be 31 December 2023.

Prices are expressed in US Dollars.

When you join or renew your membership you should receive an automated email from Paypal. Also within one week, you should receive a further email from the ACEI confirming your membership details. If you do not receive an email from the ACEI please contact the Executive Secretary/Treasurer

If you have any questions or wish to discuss membership please contact the Executive Secretary/Treasurer
