The cost of a regular one-year LCS Membership is $35 United States dollars (USD). All contributions (after PayPal’s fees of ~3%, if one uses PayPal) go to the LCS and are used to provide the above-mentioned services, provide for continuity of our programs and events, and pay for those things for which we don’t have capable volunteers or donations.
The LCS also provides discounted memberships for $25 USD. To qualify for a discounted membership, you must meet one of the following criteria:
- Be under 18 years old.
- Be a student attending a diploma- or degree-granting institution full-time or part-time (at any level: such as high-school, college, graduate school).
Individuals requesting discounted memberships because of student status need to provide us with the name of their school. Student discounts are good only if the potential member is a student at the time of purchase. Members who are no longer students at the time of their renewals must renew at the regular rate (note: discounted memberships do not automatically renew). All discounted membership requests are subject to review by the LCS board of directors.
For those with extreme financial hardship, the LCS may be able to provide further discounts to our membership fee. Please click on this link to fill out a request form.
Membership to the Language Creation Society is open to any individual who is 13 years old or older.
