Membership At SUAPS

The Society for UAP Studies offers a variety of membership types.

Advisory Board Member

Advisory Board Membership is intended for those with exceptional academic or professional qualifications, or an established and reputable body of research and publications in UAP Studies or pertinent academic disciplines. Advisory Board Members are asked to play a more active role in the specific work of the Society. Functions may include offering expert counsel on research project organization and development, advising the Society's curriculum development team, and sitting on the Board of Certification for UAP Studies. Advisory Board Members are not asked to pay dues to the Society.

Benefits include free access to most of the Society's events and online publications (including all members-only website content) and first choice for active leadership roles in the various activities and functions of the Society.

Please note: there are only a limited number of advisory board member positions available, and membership here is at the sole discretion of the Society's Board of Directors.
