How to Join

You can join PAMLA via our Online Registration System created by our Ballast Academic partners. Our registration and payment system requires that you first Create a User Account, and then click on the Registration & Membership tab to join PAMLA and pay the conference fees. You may also use this new system to make a donation to our PAMLA Scholarship Fund, which helps graduate students to attend our annual conference.

If you have any questions about your payment status or should you experience any problems with paying, please feel free to contact PAMLA’s Executive Director, Craig Svonkin at: or by calling him at 626/354-7526.

Thank you for your support of PAMLA.

2020 PAMLA Membership/Conference Payment

PAMLA membership is required for all conference presiding officers, chairs, and presenters.

Membership for presiding officers is due by May 1 at the latest.
Membership for all other conference participants is due by July 10, 2020.
Conference fees are due by September 16, 2020.
For those who pay their conference fee after September 16, there will be an additional late fee charged.
Those who pay their conference fees before June 30, 2020 will enjoy an early bird discount.
After November 2, those who haven't yet paid their membership and conference fees will be removed from the conference program.

Your dues payment gives you membership in PAMLA for the 2020 calendar year, so no matter when you join in 2020, your membership expires at the end of the 2020 year.

When joining PAMLA and/or paying for the conference, please also consider making a donation to our PAMLA Graduate Student Scholarship Fund--an option available via the same payment system.
