You should consider joining SSE (Soc. Study Evol.) and SSB (Soc. Syst.
Biol.) and SMBE (Soc. Mol. Biol. Evol.).
The membership rates for students in SSB are extremely cheap (US$ 12.50).
I don't know about the others. Also, you get the journals with these
memberships in these societies.
Moreover, the SSB/SSE (&SMBE?) joint meeting is in Montreal this
Given that your interests appear to "micro"evolutionary, these seem to
be the most appropriate. If they veer to the macroevolutionary, you might
want to consider the Willi Hennig Society too.
