Letter from AASR Treasurer, Abel Ugba
Dear AASR Members,
I hope this mail finds you well. I am writing to remind you to pay your annual membership fee (2019 and 2020), and to confirm the two main ways you can make payments. I would also like to remind you of the payment requirements.
- The annual fee for members in North America, Europe and the global North is US$60.
- The fee for members in Africa and the global South is US$30.
- Students, retired academics and the unwaged will pay 50% of the fees that have been approved for the country or region where they are based.
OPTION 1: Payment into AASR Bank Account: You can pay directly into the AASR’s bank account, using the following details:
African Association for the Study of Religions
Bank: Bank of Scotland
Address: The Mound, Edinburgh, EH1 1YZ
Branch Code: 80-20-00
Account No: 00208442
IBAN: GB05 BOFS 8020 0000 2084 42
OPTION 2: Payment via PayPal: You can pay into our PayPal account: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please contact the AASR Treasurer, Abel Ugba (email@example.com), if for technical or other reasons you are not able to pay into the bank account or through PayPal.
Deregistration of defaulters: The resolution that we adopted in Kenya in 2012 called for the de-registration of non-paying members. In line with this resolution, members who still haven’t paid their fee by August 1st will be sent a notice of de-registration at the end of August 2019.
National representatives who have collected annual fees from members in the past year or two should pay all monies into the account and send an updated list of payers to the Treasurer to prevent wrongful de-registrations.
As planning for our 2020 Conference in Senegal has started in earnest, your financial support is needed more than ever. I thank you all for your continued support for the AASR.
