An individual membership entitles a person to:

Develop a working relationship and be involved in a network of other homicide researchers
Attend the three- to four-day annual meeting
Participate in the HRWG session at professional meetings such as the American Society of Criminology, Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, and others
A one-year subscription to Homicide Studies

A “couples” membership is available for spouses and intimate partners. It is not intended for persons whose relationship is best described as colleagues/coworkers in the same department or institution. Although each couple will receive only one copy of each mailing that is normally sent to individual members, a couples membership entitles both persons to:

An entry in the Membership Directory,
Vote on HRWG issues and in elections,
Serve as an HRWG committee member or officer,
Attend and participate in the HRWG annual meeting, and
Subscribe to the HRWG listserv

An “agency” membership is available for persons employed at public or private organizations (e.g., private research facilities, government organizations) involved in or interested in homicide research, but does not include colleges, universities, and institutions of higher learning. An “agency” membership provides for two copies of all HRWG mailings.
For all interested employees, the benefits of an agency membership would include:

An entry in the Membership Directory
Ability to attend and/or participate in the annual meeting
Access to the HRWG listserv
Vote, hold office, and/or serve on HRWG committees under the same provisions as individual members; however, no more than two employees from the same agency are eligible to vote, hold office, or serve on committees during the same terms
