If you are brand-new to TUG, you can use either the simplified trial membership form, or the full form below, as you prefer.
By joining TUG you support the use and development of (La)TeX and friends, including the TeX Collection software. Additional benefits include the journal TUGboat and myriad discounts. All TUG memberships are for the calendar year, so you get the same benefits whenever you join.
For 2024, all new individual TUG members will be automatically entered into a lottery with one winner for each of these items: Do Not Erase, by Jessica Wynne (reviewed for TUGboat) - History of Desktop Publishing, by Frank Romano (also reviewed for TUGboat) - Indie Fonts 2 from DRY Inc. (two copies).
Membership dues are generally tax deductible (at least in the USA), less value of benefits, which for this year is calculated as $45, or $15 if the electronic option is taken (all amounts in US dollars). Additional donations are generally fully tax deductible (again, at least in the USA). More info on TUG's tax-exempt status.
If you would rather not pay using PayPal (or cannot), please click here for an alternate membership form. The form on this page collects payment information using PayPal. Using PayPal is faster and less expensive for TUG, so we use it by default, but please, by all means, use whichever payment method you prefer.
Privacy: TUG uses your personal information only to mail you products, publications, notices, and (for voting members) official ballots. TUG does not sell or otherwise provide its membership list to anyone. The tug.org web site does not use any cookies, except those required for membership login (created by HTTP Basic Auth).
If you have any questions or difficulties submitting this form, please contact the TUG office by email or via paper mail, phone, or fax. Thanks.
