New members are always welcome!
By joining the BRS, you help support its activities, these webpages, and our shared interests and values. And with a Society membership, you receive the Society's Bulletin and the scholarly journal Russell. You also have the right to vote in Society elections, the opportunity to attend its annual meeting, and the right to access the members area of the BRS Library.
Members may be as involved as they wish. All are encouraged to attend the annual meeting and take part in other Society affairs – serve on a committee, contribute to the Bulletin, give a talk at the annual meeting, or work at some other task. Some are very active. Others wish merely to be kept informed.
TO JOIN THE BRS, just send your name, address, email address and membership dues to our new treasurer, Michael Berumen, at:
You can also join or renew your membership online using PayPal.com. Just go to their website and - in three easy steps - send your dues to our email address, email@example.com. In the message, state the purpose of the payment (join or renew) and include your address.
Membership is on an annual basis, with renewals due on January 1. All new memberships are considered as retroactive to January 1, so that whenever you join, you will receive all the publications for that year. The one exception is for new members joining in October-December; their first "year" begins then and lasts through December of the following year.
