ACE Membership Information and

Faith and Economics Subscription Information

Members receive a subscription to Faith & Economics

Those wishing to simply subscribe to Faith & Economics without being considered members may follow the membership process below, followed by an email to the Secretary/Treasurer to the effect that they are not seeking membership.

Institutional subscriptions need not seek membership in order to receive the journal.

ACE does not take positions as an Association on matters of economic policy or methodology, such that membership remains open to all who are in agreement with its general purposes. Two types of membership are available:

Regular membership is open to all interested economists who are in agreement that: Jesus Christ is the Son of God and, through his atonement, is the mediator between God and man; and that the Holy Scriptures, as the Word of God, are authoritative in matters of faith and practice.

Associate membership is open to all who support the purposes of the Association. Associate membership provides all the rights of regular membership except the rights to vote and to hold office in the Associaiton.

Institutional Memberships are open to any library or organization that would like to subscribe to the journal, and do not include any of the rights of membership in the association.

Dues are $40 (U.S.) annually for a regular faculty or professional membership, $15 for students or self-identified cases of hardship, and $90 for library or institutional memberships. You may also give a gift subscription to someone else at the $15 membership rate; professors, for example, could buy a gift subscription for a student. Potential members in extreme finaicial situations--such as some of our colleagues in transitional economies, or those in low-income missionary vocations--may email the secretary/treasurer to request a gratis subscription from our outreach fund. This fund is financed by members who make a donation in addition to their regular membership dues, as described in the next paragraph.

There are two ways to join/renew:

1. You may send your membership dues electronically, using your credit/debit card, through our encripted-payment arrangement with PayPal. (Look just below the PayPal button at the end of this paragraph for instructions for paying by PayPal without opening an account there.) We can accept most international currencies via this method. If you are able to round up your payment a bit, any amount over the regular dues level may be deducted as a charitable contribution on U.S. tax returns, and will be placed into an outreach fund to support memberships for those under financial duress. (ACE is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Contributions under $75 require no tax receipt from ACE, though you are welcomed to request a receipt from the Secretary/Treasurer.) If any of your contact information (address, phone, e-mail address, position) has changed in the last year, please give your new information on the "Change of Address" dialog box you'll encounter as you complete your PayPal transaction. If you're giving a gift subscription, be sure to mention this and include the recipient's contact information in the dialog box.

There is also a UK ACE group, which we consider a sister organization. You can read more about our ACE-UK colleagues and join their association by visiting their website.
