There are TWO "flavors" of Full Membership: Continuing and Introductory
Continuing Full Members ($65 per year) receive a one year subscription to the digital Accident Reconstruction Journal magazine, access to the "Members only" section of the NAPARS web site, including the Reference Library, Article Index, and a full archive of all past issues of the Accident Reconstruction Journal (26 years), the Accident Investigation Quarterly (all 56 issues), as well as the NAPARS newsletter (starting in 2016), various conference test results, discounts to sponsored conferences and a variety of training, as well as ACTAR discounts.
Introductory Full Membership ($30 per year) has been created to offer prospective members a chance to "dip their toes" into the world of NAPARS, without the full expense of a Continuing Membership. Introductory members will receive a three-issue trial subscription to the ARJ and all other NAPARS membership benefits except access to the “Members Only” archive/library section of the NAPARS web site. It is our hope that members on the Introductory plan will later move up to the continuing plan with the complete benefit package, but it also will allow prospective members who receive the ARJ from another source to become a member of NAPARS and avoid the cost of duplication of services.
Continuing Full Members get complete access to all of NAPARS resources, including the following:
Accident Reconstruction Journal (ARJ)
Each annual NAPARS membership will come with 6 digital issues of ARJ starting with the 2016 Jan/Feb issue, sent directly to your email inbox. Each annual membership includes 6 issues. The mailing list will be built from active members at the end of the 15th of each odd month. So, people with active memberships at 12:01am on the 16th of January will receive the first issue, while active members on at 12:01am on the 16th of March will recieve the second issue, and so on. Members who join mid-year will receive the next 6 issues. Additionally, the entire back-catalog of ARJ and Accident Investigation Quarterly (AIQ) is posted on the NAPARS website in PDF format, making this impressive resource fully available for all NAPARS members. Hardcopy can be additionally purchased from the publisher at a reduced rate.
Discounts on NAPARS sponsored Conferences and Seminars
Receive discounts on registration fees at various conferences hosted or sponsored by NAPARS. The largest is the Combined Annual Conference held on the east coast each fall, and WREX2016 in Florida. The Combined Annual Conference will take a hiatus for 2016 to help ensure everyone can attend this special event. These conferences serve as great opportunities for crash training, observing live crash testing, as well as meeting and networking with the leading experts in our industry.
