ISSP has created a tiered membership dues structure to account for the differences in economies in various countries around the world. Except for people working for multi-national corporations who presumably have more resources than most local residents, we invite new members to select the price setting for the countries in which they reside. ISSP strives to make membership as accessible as possible to the international community.
