TASA Membership

TASA memberships are available here.

Australia is a category A country. Memberships vary in length from one to five years. For full details, scroll down to Membership Fees sections below.

TASA encourages student membership, with discounted rates, and is particularly attuned to the interests of postgraduate members by advertising scholarship and early career positions. TASA membership provides an avenue to network with sociologists and keep in touch with sociological developments in Australia and across the globe.
