Membership Fee Waiver Program

Starting with the 2017 American Anthropological Association (AAA) conference in Washington DC, the Council on Anthropology and Education (CAE) is pleased to announce the Membership Fee Waiver Program for new members to CAE.  The one-time fee waiver will be for the CAE section fees only (i.e., $15 for students or $50 for standard membership).  The program applies to all eligible student or professional members.

To receive the membership fee waiver, eligible recipients must be either: 1) new members to the CAE, or 2) members who have let their membership lapse for more than 3 years (i.e., since 2014 or before). Recipients of the fee waiver must also complete the following requirements:

  • Apply for the waiver by sending the CAE Treasurer (Eric Johnson—see below) an email requesting a waiver code that will be used upon registration for the AAA conference and updating membership status.  The waiver code must be obtained prior to registration (i.e., any fees already paid will not be reimbursed).
  • Register for the AAA conference in Washington DC and use the waiver code for the CAE section membership fee.
  • Attend the AAA conference in Washington DC.
  • Participate in the new member orientation at the CAE Business Meeting event (scheduling information will be sent to all eligible recipients before the conference).

Although this waiver program is for CAE membership fees only, the AAA has a “New & Recent PhD Graduate Program” that provides a free 1 year membership to the AAA.  More information about that program can be found on the AAA website:

Please feel free to contact the CAE Treasurer, Eric Johnson, if you have any questions:
