We encourage everyone to take advantage of the joint membership/annual meeting registration package. Become an ASA member through my ASA member portal.

Refund Policy

Annual Meeting pre-registration fee refunds will only be processed for:
– an individual whose proposal has been declined, and only upon written request
– an individual whose proposal has been accepted, and had requested a letter of invitation from the ASA, but has been denied a visa; proof of the denial must be provided.

Requests for refunds should be sent to members@africanstudies.org, and will be refunded by the original method of payment. For checks, please include the mailing address.

If you are a presenter listed in the annual meeting program but cannot attend due to a visa or immigration issue, the ASA will ensure your ability to present your work through another presentation format (skype, video conference, or an onsite colleague who will present your work on your behalf).

Refunds for registration and/or membership will not be processed under any other circumstance.
