We are offering FREE membership for one year only to non-members who attend a Sempre Conference (NB. this does not include conferences 'in association with Sempre') at the non-members' rate. The free membership includes:
- Free paper copies of the journal Psychology of Music
- Electronic subscription to the journal, including back issues
- Inclusion on our mailing list to receive information on conferences, events and grants

To take advantage of this offer, please download the FREE Membership Registration Form after you have attended a Sempre conference and email it to the Sempre Administrator. Please note: the FREE membership offer is strictly limited to one year per person and does not entitle you to members' discounts for registration at the conferences you attend during your free membership year. Applications will not be accepted in advance of conferences; forms will be accepted for up to 6 months only after the date of the conference. The offer applies to delegates who attend the main Sempre conferences as detailed on the website, not the events 'in association with' Sempre.
