Support MAS

Membership, Donations, and Sponsorships


In view of the COVID-19 situation around the world, MAS will not be asking for your membership renewals for the remainder of this year. All remaining memberships scheduled to expire this year will have an adjusted due date of February 2021; just in time for our next scheduled shipwreck conference. For any members who have already paid this year, your membership due date has been adjusted to February 2022. We will also add another year for any members who paid for multiple years in advance.

We will use this period to update our membership program.  By moving all due dates to February, we will have just one single large membership push each year. This will streamline the process, not only for our volunteer membership coordinator, but for the general membership as well. New members joining throughout the year will enjoy a graduated dues rate. Those joining from March through June will pay the full price, those joining July through November will pay half price, and those joining in December and January will pay the full price but their membership will be due in February the following year (14 months later). We will also adjust our membership fees a bit in order to support the half price for those joining later the year.

Full year/partial year fees:
Individual Membership – $30/$15
Couples Membership – $50/$25
Student Membership – $20/$10

You will need to complete our ethics statement form and send it in to MAS along with your check.

You can also pay for your Membership online, but you will still need to sign the MAS ethics statement (in the above application) for your membership to be complete.
