4. Areas of Interest A maximum of 5 Areas of Interest can be selected.

Changes have been made to this section of the membership form to accommodate TASA'S two searchable Directories: (1) the Members Directory, which is an internally searchable database available to TASA members only, and (2) the Directory of Research Expertise, which is a publicly searchable database for use by the media, government agencies and researchers who wish to locate sociologists with particular areas of expertise.

If you have checked the 'I consent to my contact details being published in TASA's online members' directory' question above (General Information section of this form), then the Areas of Interest selections you make below will appear in the internal directory searchable by TASA members only. For each of the Areas of Interests you select (maximum of 5), you will be given the option to have your details appear next to that interest in the publicly searchable Directory of Research Expertise. For example, you can select your Areas of Interest as Ageing, Rural, Family, Sport and Youth but only have Ageing listed as your Area of Expertise. This option will only appear once you have selected an Area of Interest. If you check this option, you are authorising TASA to store your title, name and email address on the publicly searchable Directory of Research Expertise. Your details will then appear on TASAweb when someone searches in areas that you have selected. Please note, your details and selections can be updated at anytime throughout the year.
