Guides to the Membership Process:

The membership guides linked below are designed to help you determine both the appropriate membership and if there are any prerequisites to your application. AIEA strongly recommends that you look at these guides before submitting an application or renewal form.  

Renewal Guide: For current AIEA members
Application Guide: For new AIEA members

Note: Unaffiliated Individuals are automatically eligible to renew their membership.

Membership Essentials: 

AIEA Membership Cycle:

  • The membership cycle runs from July 1 through June 30 
  • Membership rates will not increase for 2017-2018
  • It is not possible to pro-rate membership fees.

Institutional or Organizational Membership Requirement

An Institutional or Organizational membership is connected directly to only one senior representative of an institution or organization. Once the Institutional/organizational membership fee is paid, then other people employed at that campus or organization can join at the individual membership level. The Institutional membership is generally held by an institution's Senior International Officer.

Membership Processing

Please allow 5-7 business days for AIEA to process your application after your payment has been received.

Email Requirement

  • Please note that members must join AIEA with an email address at the organization or institution that they are affiliated with in order for memberships to be activated. AIEA does not accept applications from other email addresses (including, but not limited to gmail.com, yahoo.com, and hotmail.com). 
  • Unaffiliated Members are the only exception and can join with a generic email address. 

Transfer Policy

  • Membership dues are not refundable or transferable to another institution/organization. If members change institutions/organizations, they will need to reapply for membership.
  • If you have an institutional or organizational membership, you may transfer the membership to another senior international officer within the same member institution/organization by sending their name and contact information to aiea@duke.edu. This membership transfer will be valid through the end of the membership term unless notified otherwise.
  • If you have an individual membership, you can transfer the membership to another person in the same institution/organization.
  • To maintain your AIEA membership status, you must either purchase another membership at your new institution/organization or purchase an unaffiliated individual membership.
  • If your new institution/organization is already an AIEA member, then you can join as an individual member. If your new institution/organization is not a current AIEA member, you will need to join as the institutional/organizational member. Click here to see if your institution/organization is an AIEA member or contact aiea@duke.edu.

Refund Policy

AIEA membership cannot be cancelled or refunded.
Note: If a new membership application duplicates an existing institutional or organizational membership, one of these can be transferred to an individual membership and AIEA will refund the difference in cost.

Special note for conference registration

  • Please note that in order to be eligible for member Conference Registration pricing, your membership application must be both received and processed by the deadline for that price category. 
  • Because of this, AIEA highly recommends paying via credit card during conference season to increase the chances of receiving registration discounts. 
  • Payments via check or wire transfer may delay membership processing considerably, as AIEA can only activate memberships within 1-3 business days of receipt of payment.
  • Membership applications and renewals will not be processed between February 15 through 28, 2018 due to the Annual Conference.
