PSA Refund Policy

The PSA Membership fees are not to be treated as a Journal subscription.  The fee entitles the member to the full range of PSA benefits for the membership period. As a matter of standard policy PSA does not refund payments for which a membership has been processed, a membership ID provided and access to services and all benefits enabled.  If a member has unintentionally made multiple payments for the same period of membership, the additional payments may be refunded or, if the member agrees, used to extend his or her membership. 

Membership Fee - PSA annual membership fees for individuals range from $45 to $100, depending upon location and if a printed journal is included or not. Fees for photography clubs range from $45 to $55 depending upon location. A discounted rate is available for youths under 18.  PSA fees and rates
