Responding to the current economic climate, ASIS&T is offering a lower membership rate to renewing regular members who are currently experiencing financial difficulties. Regular members can renew their membership at the hardship renewal rate of only $40, which includes all the same benefits as a regular member.

To qualify for this hardship renewal rate, you must earn less than $20,000 per year.
