When I was a doctoral anthropology student working on my prospectus, my chair Mac Marshall made an offhand comment to me that he thought there was some sort of organization for anthropologists engaged in aging research. He sent a note of introduction to his colleague Judith Barker, who quickly brought me into the AAGE fold. That year I attended an AAGE workshop where Judith and Annette Leibing took the time to review my research and provide me with thoughtful and supportive feedback. I remain grateful for the warm welcome I received as a student and have remained an active member of AAGE for more than 10 years. The AAGE workshops, peer reviewed journal, social events organized at larger meetings, and wealth of opportunities to connect with others scholars at all stages of the career trajectory— these are the reasons AAGE continues to be an academic home. While I find value in the other professional organizations in which I hold membership , such as GSA, SfAA, and AAA, AAGE provides me with a community of social scientists who share my wonder at the ways in which aging research and theory encapsulates the essence of the human experience.
