ACAL Membership

ACAL membership is now required for all presenting a paper at the annual ACAL conference. Membership dues are used to provide assistance to the conference organizers and help sponsor those who may need some help in attending. ACAL is also committed to supporting the biannual African Linguistics School.

Dues are the following:

Lifetime membership$400
Annual membership (regular)$25
Annual membership (students and those residing or working in Africa)$15
Lifetime membership for those residing or working long-term in Africa$200

Note: ACAL is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity. Dues are tax-deductible in the U.S. (EIN 46-4104934)

There are two steps to become a member:
1) membership information and
2) payment.

IF you have previously filled out the membership information AND have no changes, then you can skip directly to 2) payment.



Payment option 1: Send a check (cheque) or money order in $US to:
Association of Contemporary African Linguistics
Sharon Rose, Treasurer
Dept. of Linguistics, UCSD
9500 Gilman Drive
La Jolla, CA 92092-0108

Payment option 2: Use your credit card or PayPal Account to make a payment using PayPal. (We have not yet set up the Lifetime $200 membership for African participants. Please contact us if you are interested in this option.)

PLEASE NOTE: PayPal does not accept payments from some African countries. Participants from these countries may pay at the conference in cash or send a money order. We apologize for the inconvenience, and are exploring other options for online payment.
