Secretary / Treasurer

The Secretary-Treasurer's office of the American Society of Parasitologists (ASP) handles all of the day-to-day financial and membership business of ASP, communicates regularly with our accountants ( Axiom CPA and Business Advisors, Albuquerque, NM), keeps investment records and invests endowment funds according to the Business Advisory Committee and Council recommendations, maintains the Council and membership listservs, updates portions of this Website, and responds to routine correspondence regarding society business. Allen Press Association Management Services, Lawrence, KS, processes all of our receipts and issues bills. Allen Press, Lawrence, KS, publishes the Journal of Parasitology, supported by your dues and subscriptions. Axiom CPA and Business Advisors, our accountants, arrange for the annual review. 

The Journal of Parasitology is published electronically, with print options available to both ASP members and institutional subscribers. Members and students who are interested only in electronic access can join the society at a substantial discount. For new journal and membership rates, please consult the membership page. From the Business and Directory link, go to  ASP ONLINE Business Office and follow the instructions for becoming a member or renewing a membership. 

Membership, of course, allows you to receive the Journal of Parasitology, a publication with a strong international reputation and a very long shelf life. Your library's subscription makes this journal readily available for your students, too. The Journal of Parasitology is also available through BioOne and JSTOR, the latter with a floating 3-year wall (all back issues available online up to the most recent three volumes). We strongly encourage you to help convince your library to subscribe via these two services.
