The 91st Annual Meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists

How to pay for someone else, or register for someone else


Unfortunately, the new registration system does not directly support one person registering or paying for another person. This feature was eliminated because it wasn't used very often, yet added considerable complexity.

The work-around is to go through the registration process once for EACH person, using that person's email and that person's name. For example, if you want to pay for yourself AND your student Bob, first register and pay for yourself using your email address. Then ask Bob to start his registration using his email address. When he gets the registration link in his email, have him forward it to you. You can then complete Bob's registration and pay for him at the end.

Always follow this rule:

One email address ↔ one person ↔ one registration

This means:

  • Never register yourself using two different email addresses.
  • Never register someone else using one of your email addresses.
  • Each person attending the meeting, whether submitting an abstract or not, should register using his or her own email address.

If you paid for each person by credit card, e.g., once for you and once for Bob, you are done.

Instructions if paying by check: add up all the fees for, e.g., yourself and your student Bob, and send the check to this address. Be sure and provide an itemized list of people whose registrations are being paid.

Alternatively, you can pay for everyone at the meeting itself, albeit with higher fees.
