Discounted membership available for those in developing and underdeveloped countries, as identified by the World Bank.

ACerS recently introduced a new program that offers discounted, electronic membership for individuals in developing and underdeveloped countries.

To better serve professionals and graduate students* from all technical and economic sectors of the ceramics and glass community, individuals working or studying in developing countries are eligible for electronic membership at 50% off the regular annual dues.

Electronic membership enables electronic access to ACerS products and services, including scientific journals, The ACerS Bulletin, Bulletin Archives Online, webinars, and all other members-only electronic content. Electronic members do not receive printed publications.

Electronic membership enables ceramic and glass professionals and students to connect with colleagues from around the world.  Eligible countries are based on those defined as Low-Income or Lower-Middle-Income Economies by the World Bank. Click here for a list of qualifying countries.

If you reside or study in one of these countries, you must apply for Electronic Membership by completing the Electronic Membership Application Form.  Residents from countries that are removed from the World Bank list will continue to receive a dues discount for an additional 12 months, at which time they must renew at the current regular annual dues for Individual members.

* undergraduate students may apply for Material Advantage membership at reduced rates here.
