Web site migration

New membership platform

  • CARL is moving to a new membership platform, so you’ll see a different interface when you go to pay your annual dues. Although the website itself is currently under construction, the membership form and payment system are fully functional.
  • There is no change to the types of membership or member fees.
  • Membership is now automatically set to notify you of your renewal date one year following your most recent individual dues payment.
  • The database defaults to showing your name, professional title, and institution publicly in the membership directory – you can adjust your profile if you want to show more or less.
  • The website will eventually be migrated to the new platform and we hope to unveil new features to make things more engaging and user-friendly.
