Membership in the Catharine Maria Sedgwick Society supports initiatives surrounding our triennial symposia, including travel subsidies for graduate students. In addition, current CMSS members are eligible to vote in CMS Society elections and receive priority notice regarding CMSS calls for papers and email updates about society activities. 

The membership year runs from July 1 to June 30.
One-year membership fees are as follows:

Regular: $10
Student: $5
Institutional: $25

You can also become a Lifetime Member of the Society for $200.

To join the CMS Society or to renew your membership, click on the Buy Now button below and fill in the appropriate subscription amount. (You may also include an additional donation to the Society if you wish.) We use PayPal to process membership fees, but you do not need a PayPal account to complete your credit card transaction. Please note that the box for price per item does not have a dropdown menu and, therefore, will remain blank until you fill in the amount that fits with your membership level. You may also use the Buy Now button to pay for other CMSS-related concerns.
