There is a members-only mailing list for linguistic discussions, questions, and announcements.
SLLS members receive a discount to the registration fee of the TISLR conferences.
Members are eligible to journal subscription discounts. We can currently offer discounts to Sign Language Studies, Sign Language & Linguistics and the Journal of Deaf Studies & Deaf Education, and to the German journal Das Zeichen (through a discounted membership of the GGKG society).
