Dear SAA members:
We write to remind, and update, you about SAA membership. As you may recall, in 2017, the SAA General Assembly decided to introduce membership fees to take SAA to the next level and lay the grounds for further development and growth. Benefits for members include substantially reduced fees for the bi-annual SAA conferences, the signature event for Ambulatory Assessment research over the past ten years, access to the members’ directory, and platforms for scientific exchange. We are also planning on continuing to expand these benefits; for example, adding additional membership programming (e.g., additional scientific meetings, workshops, etc.) in the future. All membership fees were waived for the 2018 year but are required for 2019 and thereafter.
At this time, particularly if you are planning on attending the 2019 SAA meeting to be held in Syracuse, NY, we encourage you to renew your SAA membership and pay your annual dues! To do this, you may directly access the membership link on the re-designed SAA website at:
SAA offers three tiers of membership: Full membership, Emeritus membership, and Trainee/Early career membership. Membership fees apply to the calendar year and have been set according to the outcomes of a member survey that was presented at the General Assembly on occasion of the last SAA conference and range from 45 EUR (student) to 95 EUR (full member) per year. Detailed information can be found on the SAA website.
To allow for a smooth transition, we kindly invite all existing SAA members to re-enroll, update your information, and pay up the 2019 membership dues (please note that individuals who do not re-register for SAA membership by 1 June, 2019 will have their records deleted from the members’ database). Applications by existing SAA members will be prioritized and handled preferentially and, of course, are exempt from further eligibility checks.
The SAA has been a thriving interdisciplinary platform for Ambulatory Assessment research driven by its members’ visions and scientific passion. Please join us in helping SAA to continue its success as the scientific home for Ambulatory Assessment.
