The Society's 2016 annual meeting will be a joint meeting with the International Society for Folk Narrative Research, October 19-22, at the Hyatt Regency Miami, in Miami, Florida. The theme for the meeting, on which presentations are encouraged but not required, is "Unfinished Stories: Folklife and Folk Narrative at the Gateway to the Future."

See the 2016 AFS/ISFNR Joint Annual Meeting page for complete, current information.

Prospective participants submit proposals for presentations; proposal submission begins in February and ends March 31. Proposals will be reviewed by a committee of ISFNR members and/or folklorists from the region. Typically, AFS sends notification of acceptance or rejection for the meeting program, and posts hotel and tour information in the first weeks of June, then posts a preliminary program schedule for the meeting by July 1.

Preregistration closes on August 31; on-site registration is available at a higher rate.

Presenters will receive letters of invitation after the program is finalized, probably early June. Those who wish to attend the meeting but not to present may request a letter of invitation at any time by contacting
