Changes to PMRA Dues Structure for 2013-2014
At the 2011 Public Management Research Conference in Syracuse, the executive board voted to implement a two-year membership plan. The Editor-in-Chief, Ken Meier, was able to negotiate a very positive deal. For 2012, PMRA's one-year subscription/membership price was $104. The new rate is a two-year membership fee of $200. These changes will result in a four percent cut in subscription prices and a net savings of $23.86 based on the projected increase in institutional rates. Individuals who purchase an online-only subscription will receive a further discount of $10, which is about half the mailing costs. Similar discounts will be applied to subscription rates for students. The new dues structure took effect with the renewals for 2013-14.
