Membership & Dues

October 22, 2012


The Goethe Society of North America currently has approximately 250 members worldwide and welcomes new members at any time. Members receive the Goethe Yearbook, special issues of the Yearbook, and Goethe News and Notes, the Society's newsletter, which publishes calls for papers and other announcements. Back numbers of the Yearbook and Special Issues No. 1 and No. 2 are available at special member's prices.

To join the Society simply contact Claire Baldwin, Secretary-Treasurer, or any of the other Officers.

Annual dues are collected by calendar year and should be remitted in US Dollars only, either directly through PayPal or by mail to Prof. Claire Baldwin (Department of German, Colgate University, 13 Oak Drive, Hamilton, NY 13346). For membership categories see the schedule below. Additional PayPal fees apply for all categories except "Patrons." Please note that GSNA cannot provide any technical support for PayPal payments.

Please consider also making a donation on top of your dues payment. Your additional support will ensure the financial health of the Society and allow us to continue to offer such services as the Yearbook, the Essay Prize, the new Book Series, and graduate student support without having to raise membership fees. Thank you so much in advance.


NB: Members who have not yet paid their annual dues are gently reminded to do so now. The Goethe Yearbook is sent only once this obligation is met.
