Dear CAGH members,
We would like to alert you to recent changes in our membership policy and procedures for Special Interest Groups (SIGs). The Society for Medical Anthropology (SMA) supports SIGs as an important part of strengthening communication and collaboration among scholars based on topical interests. As a Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Society for Medical Anthropology (SMA), we are required to report our membership demographics to the SMA board, which helps them determine SIG status and resource allocation. In an effort to promote and streamline SIG membership, a single membership form was created.
The form is available on October 15th through December 15th. The form is very brief and will be used to establish memberships in all the SIGs. We ask that all CAGH members who would like to be part of a SIG(s) fill out this form whether you are currently a member of a SIG(s) or not. If you do not fill out the form by December 15th, you may be removed from (or not added to) your SIG(s)’ roster.
Please note : You do NOT need to be a member of SMA to continue your membership in CAGH. Simply indicate on the form whether you are a member of SMA or not and select the appropriate SIG(s) in which you would like to maintain membership. We are committed to keeping our membership open to those who are not members of SMA and AAA.
You will only need to fill out this form once per year. Please direct any questions/comments to Elizabeth Wirtz <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
