We welcome affiliation with any scientific society based in the Washington, DC area. Affiliating with the Academy brings many benefits:
Meeting Venues in Downtown DC
- Meeting rooms are available in the AAAS building (1200 New York Ave. NW). Rooms include Abelson, Haskins, Revelle, and a board room (Room 207). Receptions in the main lobby are also possible. Meeting rooms should be requested well in advance to ensure availability.
- Publicity for our Affiliates’ functions includes posting on our website calendar (viewed by about 5000 visitors monthly) and email circulation to all of our Affiliates (reaching between 10,000 and 20,000 scientists).
The Journal of the Washington Academy of Sciences
- Members of our Affiliated Societies receive preference to publish in the prestigious Journal of the Washington Academy of Sciences (all papers are peer-reviewed).
- Members of the Academy may request that any Journal article be posted on the Academy website at no cost (all of the Tables of Contents since 1898 are posted). The delegates from the Affiliates may make the request on behalf of any member of the Affiliate. This service is not available to non-members.
Please contact us if you are interested in adding your Affiliate to our membership.
