Dues for the SCBS are $15 annually for regular membership, $10 for students, and $300 for a lifetime membership.  As a courtesy, the Southern Historical Association extends the option of affiliate membership (non-voting) to members of the SCBS for $7.  For those interested, full membership in the SHA’s European History Section is available. All SCBS dues may be paid through the SCBS Secretary/Treasurer.  Please complete our Membership Form and mail to the address indicated.
