Registration to the BEA2021 Virtual Convention this April will be included in your membership for FREE!

As a membership organization, you are the key to our association.  That’s why we are continuing to build avenues for you to promote traditional research and creative scholarship, create professional development and networking opportunities, and produce events for you to learn from the industry and colleagues at our April convention, all while trying to keep these difficult financial times in mind.

Thanks to the generosity from a select group of our sponsors, the cost of registrations to our annual convention in April is complementary to our members. We will be showcasing these companies in the coming weeks, but for now, please join us in thanking  Routledge/Taylor & Francis and FirstCom Music for their support.
