ACM Lifetime Membership Advantages
There are two clear advantages to a Lifetime Membership for an ACM Member:
- An ACM Lifetime Member enjoys the convenience of making a single payment for their entire tenure as an ACM Member
- An ACM Lifetime Member is protected from future ACM price increases.
ACM Lifetime Membership Application Process
ACM Professional Members may apply for Lifetime Membership upon their original application, or during the course of their Professional Membership. ACM Lifetime Membership dues are based on the age of the member at the date of application and the standard Professional Member Dues rate at that time. Lifetime Membership applicants may also opt to include the ACM Digital Library in their Lifetime Membership Package, with the pricing structure based on age tiers and current pricing.
You may add or renew ACM subscriptions (the Digital Library, Publications or Special Interest Groups) for one year by selecting the appropriate buttons at the checkout page.
ACM Lifetime Membership Limitations
Past Professional or Student Member dues payments cannot be applied towards Lifetime Membership dues. Additional discounts cannot be applied to ACM Lifetime Membership. ACM reserves the right to change or substitute the benefits, products or services included in a member's original Lifetime Membership Package at any time.

Why I Belong to ACM
Hear from Bryan Cantrill, vice president of engineering at Joyent, Ben Fried chief information officer at Google, and Theo Schlossnagle, OmniTI founder on why they are members of ACM.
ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” serves up expert-curated guides to the best of computing research, and relates these breakthroughs to the challenges that software engineers face every day. This installment, “The DevOps Phenomenon” by Anna Wiedemann, Nicole Forsgren, Manuel Wiesche, Heiko Gewald and Helmut Krcmar, gives an overview of stories from across the industry about software organizations overcoming early hurdles of adopting DevOps practices, and coming out on the other side with tighter integration between software and operations teams, faster delivery times for new software features, and achieving higher levels of stability.
Written by leading domain experts for software engineers, ACM Case Studies provide an in-depth look at how software teams overcome specific challenges by implementing new technologies, adopting new practices, or a combination of both. Often through first-hand accounts, these pieces explore what the challenges were, the tools and techniques that were used to combat them, and the solution that was achieved.
