Responsibilities of Membership

Candidates should be aware of the following responsibilities of membership in the AACR:

  • Adhere to Acceptable Scientific Standards. By becoming an AACR member, candidates acknowledge that they will adhere to acceptable ethical scientific standards and have or will make long-term contributions to cancer research.
  • Pay Annual Membership Dues (where applicable). Each fall the AACR will send to current AACR active, affiliate, and associate members an invoice for dues for the forthcoming year. Association bylaws state that dues are payable for each year in advance by January 1 of the year to which they should be applied. The board of directors may terminate the membership of any member whose dues are in arrears for two years.

Important Note: AACR members may sponsor an abstract for the Annual Meeting only if their dues for the current year are paid.
