After joining, members will receive a membership certificate and four issues of Phi Alpha Theta's nationally recognized scholarly journal, The Historian.

Membership in Phi Alpha Theta is for life.  However, in order to continue to receive The Historian, individual members will need to pay an annual subscription fee directly to the national office.
