AIA Societies

Local Societies are the backbone of the AIA. Located across the United States, Canada, and abroad (Greece and Iberia), societies are run by and for their own AIA Members, giving individual members the satisfaction of being involved in the AIA at both the national and local levels.

AIA Headquarters sponsors national lectures annually for each society. But the heart of every AIA Society is the locally planned programs—field trips, local tours, symposia, film festivals, and study groups—as well as additional lectures organized independently by each society. Society Members enjoy a full program of activities throughout the year that serve to foster and enhance their interest in archaeology.
