Why join the HDCA?

Wondering if you should join the HDCA? Perhaps these personal stories from HDCA members will help you decide.

Registered HDCA site user versus full HDCA member

There are 3 levels of access to the HDCA website:

  • Browse the website as a visitor - not able to download publications or access member information
  • Become a subscribed user to the site - free, with limited access to publications
  • Become a full member of the HDCA - pay a nominal membership fee and have full access to publications and member listings, as well as other member benefits (such as a subscription to the Journal of Human Development & Capabilities)

The table below summarizes the benefits available at each level.
