AAG to Support Geographers from Countries Affected by Trump Travel Restrictions
The AAG will refund the conference registration fees for any AAG member or attendee who is a citizen of one of the seven countries affected by the U.S. Travel Ban and who by virtue of being outside the United States at this time will not be able to attend the AAG Annual Meeting in Boston. In the interest of giving such members a voice at the conference we also will allow for their abstracts to remain in the program and their oral presentations to be delivered by a registered member able to attend the meeting or their posters to be displayed should they be able to send their posters to the meeting. The AAG also will provide for a Skype or similar teleconference option for these affected participants to present their paper. We will need notification in advance if members affected by the Travel Ban wish to have a surrogate present their talk or poster, or wish to deliver their paper via teleconference.
