MyASP Account

ASP Members must create a MyASP account in order to receive full membership benefits, access history and membership information as well as shop the AstroShop online with your 10% discount or reduced Annual Meeting and Awards Gala ticket prices.

Donors and those who purchase products from our AstroShop, such as educational materials and ASP Conference Series books can also create a MyASP account which will allow them to track their donations, change their credit card information for recurring donations, as well as have their order and shipping information already in our system.

Note: If you want to change the email address associated with your MyASP account, please contact the Membership Department at or (415) 715-1400.

Instructions to create a MyASP Account

The MyASP Portal is a place on the ASP’s website where our members, donors, and those who purchase our AstroShop products, educational materials, and Conference Series books can manage their access and information online with the ASP.  

Note: If you are a returning member prior to 2017, you will be required to create a new account name and password in order to access all of your previous history with the ASP and in order to access your current information.
