Slavists who are not members are very welcome to join CAS. All participants in the CAS meeting, be they presenters or members of the audience, must register. (For purposes of registration at the Congress, the Canadian Association of Slavists is no. 56). The number of registered participants determines the amount of support that the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences lends to CAS.
