2016 Joint AFS/ISFNR Meeting: Information for ISFNR Members
Share |

Members of AFS and/or ISFNR may register for the meeting at a discounted rate. In order to be recognized as a member and claim the discount online, you must first sign in to the AFS website.

If you are an ISFNR member who is also a current member of AFS, you should simply sign in with your AFS membership before you register for the meeting; choose the registration category that corresponds with your membership. Notes:

  • If your AFS membership has lapsed, but you intend to renew, we highly recommend that you do so before you register for the meeting, since this will keep your records simple and associated with your AFS profile. If you do not intend to renew your AFS membership, please proceed with the instructions for ISFNR members.
  • If your AFS membership lapsed more than 12 months ago, you may submit your renewal online, but the system won't immediately reactivate your membership. AFS staff can quickly correct the system; please contact to alert us to the issue.

If you are a current member of ISFNR but not of AFS, you may register for the joint meeting at the regular member rate:  $155 preregistration (ends August 31), $180 on-site registration. We have created an "ISFNR" membership for you. This membership will allow you to access some member privileges associated with the AFS website, like the ability to join AFS sections and access discussion forums; it will expire December 31, 2016. To sign in:

  • For your username, enter ISFNR plus your primary email address on record at ISFNR (eg,"). 
  • Reset your password using the "forgot your password?" link in the sign in box. You should receive the reset link within minutes of requesting it. If not, check your spam folder, and/or contact for help.
  • Once you have successfully signed in, you can change your username, password, and/or contact information using "Edit Bio" under "Manage Profile" in the Profile menu. Your registration payment receipt can be found under "Invoices," filtered for "Any Status."
  • If you prefer not to receive a bi-weekly email digest of the AFS Review, including news, professional opportunities, and call for papers, use "Edit Bio" and select "no" in response to "Receive AFS Review Digest?" (one of the last questions on the form).

As always, contact if you need assistance.

Letters of Invitation

You may, of course, contact at any time to request a letter of invitation; AFS staff will endeavor to respond promptly to such requests.

Alternatively, if you submit a proposal, you may use the proposal form to request a detailed letter of invitation. Once the schedule is finalized, probably by early June, AFS staff will prepare individualized letters of invitation that include your presentation title, time and date. If you don't receive the letter you requested using the proposal form by June 15, please contact
