Join | Renew | Pay

We inspire. We educate. We advocate.

Step 1. Fill out our online membership form through BigTent.

Although the signup process on BigTent says membership is free, it isn’t. (Sorry!) After signing up through BigTent, please proceed to Step 2 below to pay your dues. Contest entries and other member services are not considered valid until dues have been paid.

Questions? Contact membership coordinator John Hart, Wisconsin State Journal, e-mail, (608) 252-6158

Step 2. Pay your dues (and convention or contest fees).

Full Professional Membership includes your POY Contest Fee, Annual Convention registration fee, access to the monthly clip contest and local/regional events – an $80 value – at a great savings of $65.

Full Student/Educator/Retiree Membership including the same benefits is $20.

Basic Professional Membership is $40, but does not include POY contest fees or Annual Convention registration. Those may be added a la carte for $20 each.

All memberships run on a calendar year basis, January 1 – December 31, and fees paid after May 31 will be prorated 50%. Simply choose your desired fee option in the PayPal widget below, and click “Add to Cart.” If you need to add multiple items, add one item and then click the “Continue shopping” link.
