   The annual ISS membership fee is due on January 1 of each year, regardless of when you started during the year.  As the ISS is a non-profit organization, the fee is tax-deductible in the U.S., as are gifts, and may be in other countries as well.  Membership brings an optional discount subscription to the annual hardbound journal SHAW (300 pages or more) at $30 per year ($50 retail), plus mailing costs if not in North America.  To become a member or renew your membership or give a membership, please complete the form below and mail it with your check (cheque) or money order in U.S. dollars made out to “International Shaw Society” and addressed to: ISS, P.O. Box 728, Odessa, FL 33556-0728.  You can speed this process up by emailing via attachment the completed form to the ISS Treasurer at and by using PayPal.  As U.S. banks now charge 30% or more for checks/cheques in a foreign currency, including Canadian, please send cash instead or use PayPal (PayPal preferred), but add at least $2.00 to cover PayPal charges and direct payment to the PayPal account. Questions?  Email the ISS Treasurer at
