Please renew your ASA membership ASAP, and especially your membership in our section.  The Sociology of Development section works hard for its members by increasing publication outlets, promoting scholars’ research to the public, hosting an annual conference, supporting internal interest groups, and mentoring young scholars.  One of the most important things you can do for our section each year is simply sign up as a member, and encourage your colleagues and students to join as well.  The more members we have, the more opportunities we can create for development scholars and scholarship.

Renew your membership here:
