New AFS Membership Management System Coming Soon, Outage Dates During Transition

AFS News

In our continued efforts to update and improve our membership experience, AFS will be transitioning from its current membership management system with Your Membership to a new system by Growth Zone.

As part of this transition, it is necessary that we temporarily black out access to our online membership portal from August 30 through September 9, 2021. During that time, members will not be able to renew memberships, pay section dues, register for the annual meeting, or access other membership benefits. As such, we encourage our members to take care of any immediate needs prior to the August 30 black out date.

Once the new system is up and running, all members will receive instructions about how to login and access the new membership portal. During the black out period, the primary AFS website at https://americanfolkloresociety.org will still be available, including news and resources.

We sometimes make mistakes, and we are happy to correct any errors that you may come across on our site. If you find an error, please let us know using the “submit a correction” link.
