You can pay your SORA dues with your SSC membership, with your ASA membership, or directly to SORA by completing and sending in the attached membership form. You do not need to belong to the ASA or the SSC to be a member of SORA. Some of our members pay more than once, through both the SSC and the ASA for example; we thank them for their generosity but you only need to pay once. Please note that because of fluctuating rates of exchange and differences in membership year end, the dues requested will not be exactly the same through each route.
