Please note that ASA membership is based on the calendar year, and expires every year on December 31. If you have not yet renewed your membership in the ASA in 2016, we encourage you to do so! Over the summer the ASA will be adding additional features in the members only section of the website, including membership resources focused on professional development, advocacy, employment, and more. This members only section will also provide a platform for ASA coordinate organizations and new ways for ASA members to interact with ASA publications.

You may utilize this portal to register for the ASA Annual Meeting – and remember that all those who are on the program must register by June 15, 2016! You only have two weeks left to register, so make sure to do so today.

If you are not sure if you have renewed your membership, you can check by either contacting the ASA at members@africanstudies.org, or by trying to access your profile in the portal. If you are not a current member and had a user account on the legacy ASA membership site hosted by Cambridge Journals Online, your user information has been carried over automatically to the new system and you will find instructions on how to login to the portal using your existing username.
