The AAR rents (for a certain number of uses) its membership list for use in mailing catalogs, flyers, announcements, etc. which are of a professional interest to the profession. We exclude from those rentals, of course, addresses for members who have opted out.
We are very specific with the terminology we use in saying that we "rent" the list (meaning that we retain all rights and control over the use of the list) rather than "sell" it.
Go to AAR Mailing List Rentals. Our policies and pricing can be found on that page.
At the top of the Interest Area List, it is explained that these counts are for all member types in all geographic areas; if you are requesting (for example) only "regular members in the U.S.," then you are choosing to receive only a portion of the total members with that interest area.
Also, if you select more than one interest area, the lists are deduplicated. Thus, a person may have (for example) an interest in Anthropology (D01) and Archaeology (D02), and thus appear in the base count for both lists, but she or he will only appear once in the final label set. It is for this reason that you cannot simply add together the interest area counts to predict the total numbers.
Our sytem will provide an instant count and cost for most selections, so it is not necessary for you to do the mathematics. Use this functionality to ascertain the count and cost based on parameters you select.
On the label rental request page, we ask advertisers to allow us two business days to process payments. We make every effort to process submissions and payments by the next business day. If the timing issue is critical, however, we encourage you to call Jane Smith (404-727-2297) in accounting or the main AAR information line (404-727-3049) to be certain that no delay is anticipated.
Because AAR memberships run for the calendar year, the number of members in the AAR increases substantially over the course of the year. We require payment within thirty days to ensure that the number of names provided approximates the membership count that was returned at the time of the list request.
You should request a new list. If you make payment on the original list after thirty days, the payment may be refunded to you or applied to a new rental request.
Because we allow members to opt out of having their names rented, we want to be able to assure them that solicitations will stop within a two-month time frame of their opting out of this program.
Contact Rob Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org to work out a solution.
If you use a previous list, it may include the names of members who have recently opted out of having their names rented.
Payment options are outlined on the Payments page.
This information is provided on the Payments page.
If you pay by credit card, the email containing the payment amount is your receipt. If you paid by check, the cancelled check is your receipt.
If this is not sufficient, you can contact our accountant, Jane Smith, at 1-404-727-2297 or email@example.com with your order ID, and ask that she prepare a receipt.
Unlike in some learned societies, AAR program units do not have memberships beyond the chairs and the steering committee.
We can help you target mailing to people with specific interests. Contact Rob Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
No. The AAR has assured members that demographic information we collect will be used only internally.
