Q: I am a member of JASID. However, I was told “You are not a member of JASID” when I submitted a paper or applied for the conference

Answer 入会を申し込んだだけでは学会員の資格を得たことにはなりません。 入会の申請後、常任理事会での審査を経て、初回の会費の支払い完了後に、会員番号が付与されてはじめて、在会者として会員サービスの利用が可能となります。 入会承認の通知が届いた後に初年度会費の支払がなされていないため、ステータスが「申請中」から変更になっていないケースがあります。 また、会費の滞納が続いたり、事務局がEメール・郵便のいずれでも当該会員と連絡が取れなくなったことにより退会処分となっている事例も散見されます。また、海外赴任等で会費の送金ができない期間があったなどで籍を失うケースもあります。 海外へ転出されるなどで学会活動を休止したい会員は、事前に休会手続きをお取りください。 本件にかんするお問い合わせ先 国際開発学会・本部事務局
