Instructions and Directions for New Conference and Membership Portal

PAMLA New Registration & Payment System

In order to join the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) for the 2020 and/or 2021 year, you will need to go to our new PAMLA Ballast Academic portal.

At the PAMLA BallastAcademic page, you’ll first need to create a new User Account (unless you already did so in 2019). Once you’ve created a new user account, click on the Registration & Membership link, and then you will be able to pay for your 2020 and/or 2021 PAMLA membership, pay the 2021 PAMLA Conference fees, make a donation to the PAMLA Scholarship Fund, pay to join us for a luncheon, and make reservations for some of our complimentary PAMLA events.

Everyone presenting at the 2021 PAMLA Conference is required to join PAMLA and pay the conference fee. For more information about PAMLA’s membership dues and conference fees, go to our dues chart.

Should you have any further questions, please email PAMLA Executive Director Craig Svonkin: director@pamla.org. Or, you can give him a call: 626-354-7526.
