Join ASA, Renew Membership or Donate

The Azalea Society welcomes membership by anyone interested in azaleas, from all cultures and disciplines. We invite those who wish to learn, and those who know and wish to share their knowledge. As described on our About The Society menu, the major benefit of membership is association with like-minded gardeners, along with a quarterly 24-page color journal The Azalean, and attendance at annual conventions and chapter meetings.

Donations: Please help your Society! Please donate to the Azalea Research Fund or ASA Operating Fund. These donations are fully tax-deductible, and are separate PayPal™ transactions from the below Join/Renew actions. You can select a one-time, monthly or yearly donation amount.

Dues for one year are $30.00 for US, $45.00 for Canada and $60.00 for all other countries. In addition, there is a full-time student membership for $15.00 and a softcopy-only membership for $25.00 (worldwide). If you join after July 1st, dues are ½ price for the remainder of the year. In addition, we have lifetime memberships for $600.00, $900.00 and $1200.00, according to location (individual/joint memberships only).

Membership year
Membership is for a full calendar year starting on January 1st. Dues are not prorated; however, anyone joining after July 1st and before October 1st pays only ½ the annual rate for the remainder of the first year. If you join after October 1st, your membership will extend through the following year, and if the winter Azalean has not been mailed when you join, you will also receive that issue.

The below categories of membership may be paid for with a credit/debit card (US dollars only) or PayPal™ account. If you are paying with a credit/debit card, click the grey "Check Out" button below the orange "PayPal™ Check out" button (to the right of your shopping cart), AFTER completing all "Add to Cart" actions.

If you have difficulty with the PayPal payment interface, and wish to pay by credit card over the phone, you may call the ASA membership administrator, Pat Insley, at (703) 597-7539. If you prefer to pay your dues by check, you may download the application form, fill it out, and mail it with your check (US bank, US dollars only) payable to ASA to:

Associate Memberships: You may join additional chapters as an associate member for an annual fee of $5.00 USD per associate chapter (The associate chapter may change this rate to suit their needs). Associate membership in a chapter entitles you to participate in any of the chapter events, and also to receive electronic communications such as newsletters and monthly emails. NOTE: Due to the small dollar amount for associate memberships and the per-transaction charge when using a credit card or PayPal, please add associate memberships for more than one year at a time. You may change the number of years in your shopping cart before checking out.
