ASSNE welcomes membership applications from amateur astronomers in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. You do not need to own a telescope to join -- only a sincere interest in astronomy.

Individual memberships are open to anyone age 16 and up. Family memberships are two persons in a household age 16 and up. We also welcome dues at the supporter or donor level to help fund our community outreach programs (these include a year's membership). Find member benefits listed here. Renewal membership dues are collected annually in January. All dues are tax deductible.
