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 Guest Presenter Registration Rate 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.

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 to participate in the Annual Meeting. 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.
