PAA Membership

All program participants (First or presenting authors, chairs and discussants) must register for the Annual Meeting. Participants registering at the non-member rate will not be required to join PAA in order to appear on the program. According to University of Maryland policy, Center funds may not be used to purchase individual memberships in PAA or other organizations. If you wish to continue your membership in PAA, you will need to renew and pay for your membership on your own by using the PAA website.

Since our school has moved to the Concur Travel System, our Administrative Core personnel will not be able to pay in advance for conference registration this year. Each traveler must do so on their own, through Concur (see below for FAQ's on Concur). Before doing so each traveler must:

  • first notify MPRC of your acceptance to be on the program at PAA, using this google form
  • verify that you meet the requirements for funding before incurring any expenses, 
  • receive the KFS # from Jennifer for your travel, 
  • once approved by Jennifer and have the correct KFS#, each traveler must then put in their own request in Concur for PAA Registration and Travel expenses. Please title your request, PAA 2024 Registration and Travel Expenses.
  • Your request in Concur will route through your home department first, and then through MPRC for financial approval. You must indicate on your Concur request that MPRC will approve of your Registration Expense plus Travel up to the cap amount indicated below for faculty or students that meet the requirements.
  • After your Request has been approved through Concur, you are responsible for organizing, securing, paying, and recording all of your registration and travel expenses through Concur.  See the job aid links below for how to navigate properly in Concur.
