A membership with the Asian Neuropsychological Association not only helps support the organization but also gives you access to certain features and resources only available to members. The ANA has been working hard to advocate for our community of professionals and trainees; establish resources for the communities we serve; and develop infrastructure to leverage resources for our membership.
Benefits of membership include:
• Increased visibility via getting listed in our member directory
• Access to the ANA listserv wherein you can communicate with the entire ANA community
• Access to our high-quality newsletter, webinars, research digest and a host of other resources
• Eligibility to apply for and obtain various awards and scholarships.
• Representation and advocacy for the needs of Asians and Asian Americans in the field of neuropsychology across the globe.
• Join and get involved with any of the ANA committees when openings become available
• Voting rights to elect ANA officers (stay tuned for details on our first ANA election…..)
In order to continue to serve the needs of our members and expand the work we do, we have developed the following dues structure:
– Professional Member (starting upon COMPLETION of postdoc): $50/annually
– Affiliate/Non-Neuropsych Professional : $40/annually
– Affiliate/Non-Neuropsych Professional: $40/annually

If accepted for membership, the payment is applied to the first year membership dues. If more information on the application is required, you will be contacted by the membership committee. If your application is not accepted, your payment will be refunded.
For international members (depending on location) and those experiencing financial hardship, a sliding scale for dues are available on a case-by-case basis. Please email ANA Membership Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
