Priority Deadline: April 18 2022

What is the Section Assembly Guest Registration Program?

Each year, in an effort to draw international and community-based participants to the AAA Annual Meeting and increase AAA members’ access to these participants’ expertise, the association’s Executive Board and Executive Program Committee make Annual Meeting Guest Registrations available to all 39 sections. Guest Registrations are for qualified individuals who might otherwise not attend our annual meetings to participate in section-sponsored events. AAA waives both registration fees and membership dues for approved participants; sections and guests are responsible for all other meeting-associated costs.

Who counts as a “qualified participant” for the Meeting Guest Registration Program?

A qualified participant is an individual who has been asked to participate in a section-sponsored event, regardless of academic degree or field of expertise. Qualified participants may be employed outside of the United States or Canada either as practicing or university-based anthropologists or in some related field. Since we expect American anthropologists to be association members, qualified participants based in the United States or Canada must come from fields outside of anthropology.

CMA has one waiver available for the priority deadline, but may be able to access additional waivers after initial waivers are allocated.

Please send the following information to CMA President Cara Krmpotich:

  • Recipient Information (Name, Affiliation, Email, Mailing Address)
  • Which category does the recipient fall under?: Non-Anthropologist who bring a different perspective to the meeting OR Anthropologist who lives outside the U.S. or Canada
  • Description of the proposed Section-organized Invited Session
  • Describe why this recipient deserves a guest registration waiver
