Time to Renew Your Teratology Society Membership!

It’s an exciting time to be a member of the Teratology Society, where researchers across diverse fields come together to solve big challenges. Now is the time to renew your membership for 2019.  Please view my special video message and renew today!

Your 2019 membership dues may be paid via the Teratology Society website where you can renew online or access the printable renewal form. Upon completing the dues renewal process, you will receive an electronic confirmation. If you do not receive the confirmation message, please contact headquarters at tshq@teratology.org or 703.438.3104.

Some reminders:

  • Electronic access to the journal Birth Defects Research is included with Regular and Associate membership dues. Emeritus and Student Members may subscribe to the journal if they wish to do so. Make sure to renew by December 31 to avoid interruptions in your subscription.
  • A benefit of Teratology Society membership is access to our members-only website, BDR Connection, a place for discussion, exchange of information, and announcements; a directory of members; and access to webinars and educational materials.
  • Any contributions made during your membership renewal to one of the Teratology Society funds are tax deductible.
  • Student membership is available for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows for just $10 per year. Once a Student Member has completed training, s/he is encouraged to apply for Regular or Associate membership.

Back by popular demand! In an effort to encourage timely and sustained dues renewal, the Teratology Society Membership Committee is running two incentives:

  • Regular and Associate Members who renew their dues by November 15 will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 Amazon gift card.
  • Regular and Associate Members who wish to renew for both 2019 and 2020 may do so by contacting TSHQ@teratology.org and indicating such interest. A special multi-year renewal invoice will be created for you and will include $15 off your 2020 dues.

The Teratology Society is a member of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB). FASEB’s online membership directory includes Teratology Society members. If you would like to be excluded from the FASEB directory, please contact Society headquarters at tshq@teratology.org.

I hope to see you in San Diego next June for the Teratology Society’s 59th Annual Meeting. Abstracts are due February 15. Visit the 2019 Annual Meeting website to find the full program, abstract submission information, trainee travel award information, hotel information, and more. If you work with graduate students or postdoctoral fellows, make sure to let them know about the travel awards available to trainees whose abstracts are accepted for poster or platform presentation.

Throughout the year, I encourage you to connect with the Teratology Society on Facebook, Twitter and/or LinkedIn and to explore the Teratology Society website, which is chock full of resources including the new third edition of the Teratology Primer.

Thank you for your active participation and continued support for the Teratology Society. Should you have any questions regarding your membership or if you are not yet serving on a committee and would like to do so, please contact headquarters at tshq@teratology.org or 703.438.3104.
