Signing up for my ASA membership and the conference. Is this new?:
By attending the Annual Meeting, you give permission for images of you, captured during the conference through video, photo, and/or digital camera, to be used by the ASA in promotional materials, publications, and web site and waive any and all rights including, but not limited to, compensation or ownership. Unless this permission is revoked in writing to the ASA, by virtue of their attendance all conference visitors agree to the use of their likeness in such materials.
Also, again this year I did not have the guts to check a lower-dues income box than my actual income. It remains kind of sucker proposition, though. Whatever impressions some may try to foster to the contrary, it’s not like ASA costs $X to run and so we need to figure out what’s the equitable way to raise that X. Instead, it’s just price discrimination posing as social justice.
