Why a Membership Fee?

  • This is an active organization. Each of the board members gives their time freely to make this a great organization. To date, CARCNET has managed to conduct its activities without asking individuals to provide any monetary support. However, in order to be a more self-sufficient conservation group, our board of directors has chosen to establish a membership base.
  • Membership fees will help to further our goals of promoting research on reptiles and amphibians.
  • From the membership fee, $2 from the student membership and $4 from non-student membership will be set aside in a fund for a student award for the best paper presented at our annual meeting. Please see our Awards page for more information.
  • Our newsletter, launched Spring 2011, is titled The Canadian Herpetologist and is a biannual publication in association with the Canadian Association of Herpetologists. Please contact us if you are interested in contributing an article to the The Canadian Herpetologist or you are looking for archived editions of the Boreal Dip Net.
  • Our membership fee is only $10 for students and $20 for non-students.
