ASA COORDINATE ORGANIZATIONS

Coordinate Organizations build communities around specific areas or interests within the field of African Studies with the primary focus of facilitating the exchange of ideas, information and research findings. They function as autonomous elements of the Association, bound by the Association’s policies and procedures and legal status. Coordinate Organizations must maintain consistent by-laws and must have at least 25 of their members also be members of the ASA. A brief annual report must be submitted for the previous calendar year to the ASA Secretariat by March 15. Coordinate Organizations receive one panel without review for each Annual Meeting, and are welcome to submit other panels for review. To become a Coordinate or Affiliate Organization fill out our form. Individuals may register for membership in any Coordinate Organizations through the MyASA portal.
