Dear Colleagues,

I’m writing to request your assistance in helping us promote new discounted membership rates for the Association for Laboratory Phonology (ALP or LabPhon) by reaching out to eligible people working in economically less-advantaged countries. Currently, over 90% of current ALP members are from the United States, Germany, Canada, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Australia, France, Japan, Spain, South Korea, New Zealand, or Italy. In order to broaden our research community, new discounted membership rates are available for individuals working in economically less-advantaged countries. As we work to extend the reach of the LabPhon community, we encourage you to share this message with colleagues in eligible countries.
