Request a Membership Exemption

From Our Sponsors

In This Section

**The deadline to request a Membership Exemption expired on Thursday, March 29. From this point forward, any individual(s) wishing to participate on an Annual Meeting panel or abstract submission MUST join AAA *and* pay the Annual Meeting registration fee, no exceptions.**

Join AAA/renew membership and pay for the Annual Meeting in one transaction by completing our Membership Join/Renew Form and adding Annual Meeting registration to your shopping cart. >>

 

Per AAA Participation Rules and Policies, all Annual Meeting program participants must be active AAA members and Annual Meeting registrants. Approval of a membership exemption nullifies the requirement that proposal submitters must be members of AAA. An exemption from the membership requirement does not provide a complimentary membership and it does not annul the payment of a meeting registration fee. Per AAA Participation Rules and Policies, all Annual Meeting participants must pay a meeting registration fee prior to the submission deadline of Monday, April 16 at 3:00 pm Eastern.

 

Who is eligible?
Non-anthropologists and anthropologists living outside of the United States and Canada are eligible to receive an exemption of the membership requirement, but must pay the non-member registration fee to submit an abstract, proposal, or participate on the Annual Meeting program. They must apply for the membership exemption by logging into their own AAA account and following the steps outlined below. All membership exemption requests should be submitted by 5:00 pm Eastern on Thursday, March 29. Membership exemptions cannot be requested after March 29, 2018, regardless of circumstance. The AAA Meetings Department reviews all requests and will approve or decline the request within two business days.

How do I request a membership exemption?
To request an exemption of the membership requirement, 

  1. log onto Anthro Gateway and
  2. select "Request Assistance" on the left navigation menu.
  3. Under the Topic of Request header, select the following responses from the drop-down menus: 
    • Request: Annual Meeting Proposal Membership Exemption.
    • Reason for Request: Request an exemption of the membership requirement.
  4. Add a summary and details of why you are eligible for the membership exemption and submit by clicking Save.

The AAA Meetings Department will review your request and will approve or decline the request within two business days.

If the request is approved, you will be emailed and asked to pay the non-member registration fee.

If the request is declined, you will be contacted (via email), asked to join AAA, and pay the member registration fee.

If my request is approved, do I still have to register for the Annual Meeting?
Yes - per AAA Participation Rules and Policies, all Annual Meeting participants must pay a meeting registration fee prior the the submission deadline of Monday, April 16 at 3:00 pm Eastern. Approval of a membership exemption simply nullifies the requirement that proposal submitters must be members of AAA. An exemption from the membership requirement does not provide a complimentary membership and it does not annul the payment of a meeting registration fee.
