ISLS Annual Meeting 2023
Registration Process and Fees
ISLS has as a core tenet the commitment to increasing equity and diversity among its members, and especially for those who wish to participate in the annual meeting and publish in journals sponsored by the Society. Over the past year there have been numerous discussions within our membership, committees, and associated groups/networks around the world about how to realize this commitment in action. Since 2022, we have refined our Registration Fee structure for the ISLS Annual Meeting in an effort to act on these commitments. The Registration Fee structure is based on two factors: career category and the economic conditions in the country of residence. The 2023 Registration Fee structure recognizes: 1) that those earlier in their careers are in different financial circumstances than those later in their careers; and 2) that there are wide disparities in income across the globe. At the same time, we are maintaining the requirement that you must be a member of the ISLS to register for the Annual Meeting. There is one exception to the membership requirement: Practitioners who work primarily in settings that serve pre-college level students may register for the Annual Meeting without becoming members of the ISLS.
What do your registration fees pay for?
* Please note that we switched over to a new system in 2020. If you were not a member any time 2020-2022, you must create a new account in order to join or renew for 2023. For all membership-related questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
