The NYSSL Chapter of the American Musicological Society welcomes all music scholars and graduate students from Ontario, Québec and New York State. You do not have to be a member of the AMS to be a member of the chapter. If you would like to be a member of the chapter, please send an email to Colleen Renihan, our Secretary-Treasurer ( to add your name to the email list so you can receive updates and invitations (2-3 per year).

As a further means of going green, cutting down on paperwork, and best meeting the particularities of the chapter, we decided at the AGM in 2017 to abolish the yearly "dues." Instead, we will now collect an annual "meeting" fee of $20 for tenured faculty and $10 for non-tenured faculty, adjuncts, and grad students. This is a way to keep the chapter financially afloat, keep members on an email list without having to harass people for dues every January, and recognize that in our academic climate not all members come to the chapter meeting every year. 

Meeting fees for the 2018 year are as follows:

        Regular Members - $20 USD or CAD
        Other - $10 USD or CAD

We will collect the fee at registration.
