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.
In advance of the Institute's 2015 Working Conference for Educators: Building a Strong Future for Archaeological Outreach and Education the AIA is soliciting a series of one-page descriptions of existing archaeological outreach and education programs.
We began the first week with our second group of students by explaining the archaeology of Achill Island and touring the sites at Slievemore.
