I spoke with Jen Baldwin of FindMyPast (a genealogy records provider with United Kingdom, Ireland, United States, and Australia/New Zealand record collections) at the recent SCGS Genealogy Jamboree, and she described the FindMyPast Society Membership Program.

There is a link on the web page for societies to sign up for this program.
The retail cost of an annual World subscription to FindMyPast is $199.50 for U.S. residents. So this is a significant discount.
Readers can see the list of available record collections here.
One of the most important reasons to subscribe to FindMyPast is to be able to access the PERiodical Source Index (PERSI) - a bibliography of articles published in genealogical periodicals and newsletters. The PERSI information page is here.
I am a paid FindMyPast subscriber and use the record collections often while searching for my English ancestors and their collateral lines. They do have all of the U.S. Census records, a significant newspaper collection, and other U.S. record collections.
