Associate Organizations

RSA Associate Organizations play an important role in the society. Associate Organizations sponsor may sponsor sessions at RSA conferences. A representative from the organization serves on the RSA Council, one function of which is the promotion of professional development in Renaissance studies.

Each Associate Organization has one (and only one) RSA representative: the representative must be an RSA member in good standing and is responsible for organizing and submitting sponsored conference sessions. Associate Organizations must send a representative to the annual Council meeting, which is held during the RSA annual meeting, at least once every two years.

For information about applying for associate status, please contact Mary Quinlan-McGrath (mquinlan [at], Chair of Associate Organizations and International Cooperation. Associate Organizations do not pay a separate membership fee to RSA. Applications must first be approved by the RSA Executive Board and then by the RSA Council.

A list of inactive Associate Organizations can be found here. If your group was formerly an active Associate Organization and would like to be returned to active status, please contact us.

Below is a list of active RSA Associate Organizations with the current representative. Associate Organizations: please contact the RSA office if the representative has changed.
