Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, PSA is adjusting participation fees and working on ways to provide benefits to participants in an online/virtual format–for the 2021 conference, and throughout the year–and to ensure that participation is affordable.  Students will continue to pay a flat fee, while other participants will pay based on their annual income. Here is this year’s fee structure:

Students:      $50
Faculty, applied sociologists, and other professionals, with annual income less than $40,000:     $80
Faculty, applied sociologists, and other professionals, with annual income between $40,000 and $80,000:     $100
Faculty, applied sociologists, and other professionals, with annual income greater than $80,000:      $130
For this year there is also a special participation fee of only $10 for persons who have been seriously economically impacted by COVID-19.

This fee is non-refundable. All PSA participants are expected to use positive and collegial behavior, and abide by the PSA policy against harassment and discrimination  and the American Sociological Association’s Code of Ethics.

Frequently Asked Questions:
