Yes, but I read a post just a few days ago that ACM's general forms system
for membership applications/renewals has not been updated to reflect the
new reduced SIG-only fee options.  In other words, you will be charged $48
or $53 or something like that to join SIGAda without full-blown ACM
membership, instead of the $25 rate ACM enabled when they dropped their
SIG-only processing surcharge last year.  Note that Word version of our
SIGAda application available on my website
(http://home.earthlink.net/~hal_hart/sigadapp.doc) allows putting it on
your credit card.   -hh
