We depend on the subscriptions that our Full Individual and Corporate members pay but if you just wish to stay in touch and receive invites to some LARIA networking events and subscribe to a shorter version of our newsletter you can sign up to our mailing list for free and become an Associate member. We want to create a supportive network of researchers and show you what LARIA can offer.

If you sign up as an Associate member and someone else in your organisation has already paid the Corporate Membership fee we will upgrade your membership for free. This will happen after sign up and we will send you an email to confirm any upgrade. Please refer to the Corporate Members list to see if this applies for you.
