Renew Your Membership, then Register for the 2019 Conference

As we approach the early bird registration deadline on Thursday, October 10, below is a guide for how to renew memberships and register for the conference.

Follow these steps to ensure you receive the membership rate!

1.  Be sure you are signed in to the ASTR website.

If you are not signed in, the website will not recognize you as a member, and you will pay the non-member conference registration fee. If you do not know or cannot remember your username or your password, please contact web services manager Shaun Franklin-Sewell.

2.  Before trying to register for the conference, make sure your membership is current and paid.


All ASTR memberships expire yearly on August 31. You may still be able to login to the website, but will not receive member benefits. Need to check if you’re current?

When you log in to the website, you will be taken to the Manage Profile page.

Under Invoicing, Payments & History, click Membership to view your membership status.

After you click Membership, you will see a list of your dues payments at the bottom of the page. In the middle of the page, you will see a light pink box. This box is where your current membership is displayed.

IF YOU SEE Upgrade your membership, YOUR MEMBERSHIP NEEDS TO BE RENEWED. After clicking Upgrade your membership, you should be able to proceed through the detail confirmation and payment screens.

If Your Membership Has Lapsed Beyond the Grace Period...

Please note: Your membership may have lapsed. If that is the case, you may not see Membership under Invoicing, Payments & History. (See "reactivating your membership" in the image below.)

When you click the "here" link, you will be taken to a page with 2 buttons on it. Select the button: Upgrade My Membership Now. You will then be directed to the page with the pink box (as outlined above).

3. When Your Member Dues are Paid, Register for the Conference!

Stay logged in to the website and navigate to the registration page. From there, you should be able to process and finalize your registration. If you are an active member who has renewed for this cycle, you should be paying the price based on your membership category.
