BECOMING AND BEING A MEMBER
New members are nominated by existing members and elected by the Directors. Membership is meant to be a small recognition or endorsement of standing in Andean research. Membership is normally permanent regardless of dues payment unless the member is unresponsive for a long period, but for Active members, access to Ñawpa Pacha and full participation require dues payment. If you are a member and wish to nominate someone, please download the New Member Nomination Form, complete as much of it as possible, and email it to the Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org .
