Options for Anthropologists Outside of the U.S. or Canada and Non-Anthropologists

The options below are for anthropologists outside of the U.S. or Canada, or for non-anthropologists.

** Anthropologists within the U.S. and Canada are ineligible for the below two options.

Option 1: Requesting to Present as a Nonmember and Paying the Nonmember Rate

Non-Member Guest Presenter Registration Rate Request (formerly known as the Membership Exemption)

  • Rate available upon request until April 30, 2021.
  • Anthropologists outside of the U.S. or Canada, or non-anthropologists, may request the Non-Member Guest Presenter Registration Rate. This registration rate simply allows individuals to present at the Annual Meeting without joining AAA, but it must be requested by Friday, April 30, 2021. This rate does not provide a complimentary membership and does not include member benefits.
    • The deadline to request this rate will expire on Friday, April 30, 2021.

      After that date, any individual(s) wishing to participate on an Annual Meeting panel submission MUST join AAA *and* pay the Annual Meeting registration fee, no exceptions.**

Option 2: Requesting a Waived Registration Fee

Program Chair Waiver

  • Waiver provides assistance with registration fee and nullification of membership requirement.
  • Application deadline is April 30, 2021.
  • For Anthropologists outside of the U.S. or Canada, or non-anthropologists, a Program Chair Waiver application may be completed to request a waived Annual Meeting registration. Only participants in organized sessions, not individually-volunteered papers, may be eligible for a Program Chair Waiver. The application period will close on Thursday, May 7.
    • AAA has a limited number of Program Chair Guest Registration Waivers available. To qualify, the applicant must either be a non-anthropologist who brings a different perspective to the meeting, or an anthropologist who lives outside the U.S. or Canada. Only participants in organized sessions, not individually-volunteered papers, may be eligible for a Program Chair Waiver. Waiver recipients will receive a meeting registration to the 2021 AAA Hybrid Annual Meeting and a membership exemption.
      Travel and lodging costs are the responsibility of recipients, and the completion of an application does not guarantee selection as a recipient.
      All applications will be reviewed by the 2021 Executive Program Committee Chair, Bianca Williams.
      Application deadline: Friday, April 30, 2021
    • Access the application.
      • Waiver accept/decline notifications will be sent during the week of May 12, 2020.

Option for Students

Students may apply to volunteer at the Annual Meeting to have their registration fees reimbursed. More information about student volunteer opportunities will be available by August 2021. Not everyone who applies will be accepted. Students to present at the Annual Meeting must still be registered (and AAA members) in order to remain on submissions if selected for the program.
