Join Anacapa

When you join the Anacapa Society, you’ll become a valued member of a global, academic community devoted to the advancement of physics. The Anacapa Society’s members generally fall into one of three categories: faculty members at primarily undergraduate institutions; graduate students and postdoctoral researchers who are considering careers at primarily undergraduate institutions; and physicists at other institutions who are supportive of our mission.

Our collaborative online community is based on information sharing. With the exception of your password and registration email, the information you provide on your registration form will be listed in our member directory. To safeguard your information, only Anacapa Society members have access to the directory and we review each member registration application before authorizing membership.

Don’t worry if you make a mistake, you may edit your information in the “My Account” section after your account has been activated.
