The RNA Society is pleased to announce that for the first time we will be offering a lifetime membership level. This is a great way to show your commitment to the Society and avoid the hassle of annual renewals. For a fee of $2000, you will receive lifetime membership with all of its associated benefits, including meeting and publication discounts, and online access to the RNA journal, plus you will be protected from any future membership cost increases. Payments can be made at once or in three annual installments. We hope that many of our long-time members will consider lifetime membership as a way to show their support for the RNA Society. If you have already renewed your membership for 2012, you can apply your paid dues towards a lifetime membership. For questions or more details, please use the form on our Contact Us page and select Membership for the subject.
