AERE Individual Membership

Thank you for your interest in the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (AERE).  Our long-term goal is to promote more and better communication among economists who are interested in environmental and natural resource economics issues. We hope that you will join our efforts to achieve this result. Note that 3-Year memberships (discounted 5% from the current annual membership rate) are available under the Online Shopping tab when renewing or becoming a member. Reduced membership rates are also offered to residents in low, lower-middle, and upper-middle income nations as defined by the World Bank.

AERE offers a number of benefits for members, making the return on a membership more valuable than ever:
