AIA Societies Meet at Annual Meeting
January 7, 2012
At the AIA Societies Breakfast Meeting, representatives of the AIA from across the country came together to review activities of the past year and to brainstorm ideas to strengthen participation and to engage more AIA members on the local level.
Members reviewed the first National Archaeology Day, held last October, and shared their success stories. In addition, they discussed the National Lecture Program and Society Outreach Grants. Conversations and society presentations focused on how to engage AIA members in the community, how to encourage more students to partcipate in the AIA, and setting goals for the future.
This week on Achill Island was spent training on AutoCad on rainy days and cleaning up trenches for photography and drawings.

In advance of the 2015 Working Conference for Educators, the AIA is soliciting one-page descriptions of existing archaeological outreach and education programs.
