First, it’s important to clarify: there is NO separate membership to ANST. ANST is a part of the Educational Advisory Committee (EAC), which is part of Division 40 of the American Psychological Association – also known as the Society for Clinical Neuropsychology (SCN). In other words: by becoming a member of SCN, you automatically become a member of ANST!
First, let’s talk membership benefits: SCN membership provides not only the opportunity to become an official member of our organization, but also provides opportunities to learn about and become more involved with the larger issues impacting our professional and scientific interests, as well as gain access to SCN resources.
An additional special benefit of membership within SCN and ANST that requires a paragraph all on its own: the price! Student affiliate membership is currently very affordable at just $5! Individuals who are in their first two years post-degree are eligible for reduced membership fees of $20 per year.
Eligible individuals are invited to complete the Division 40 paper application. We highly recommend that trainees join APA/APAGS because of the many benefits conferred by membership in these organizations, however, membership is in these groups is not required prior to joining SCN/ANST. If you’re already a member of APA, you can join SCN/ANST online at the APA Division Application Website.
