Membership

All full-time and part-time faculty and professional staff of the FSU community are welcome to join the LSFN. Participation in the LSFN can take a variety of forms and we encourage those interested in the activities of the group to stay connected and involved using the following methods:

  • Subscribe the LSFN list-serv. The list-serv is our primary way of communicating about meetings, events, opportunities, and sharing pertinent information. This is the quickest and most effective way to keep in touch about all LSFN-related activities. Once you have subscribed, please feel free to send an email to group introducing yourself!
  • Fill out an LSFN membership form. This information allows us to keep track of who is interested and involved in the FSU community. Note that there is a section related to paying annual dues, however, completion of this section is not required in order to submit the form.
  • Pay annual dues. Annual dues of $10 help the LSFN fund social events and other activities. Dues can be paid via PayPal or by contacting the Treasurer directly. Note that only dues-paying members are allowed to run for Executive Committee positions or vote in elections.
