 Interest Groups Minimize

Interest groups offer SAA members the opportunity to exchange information and ideas on specific topics. To promote these conversations, interest groups may support an e-Community (an online forum for sharing ideas and information); sponsor symposia, forums, workshops, or special events at the annual meeting; contribute articles to The SAA Archaeological Record or to a journal of the SAA; and propose position and policy statements for consideration by the Executive Board.

Currently, SAA offers twenty-four interest groups. To be eligible for Interest Group membership, you must be a current SAA member. You may change your interest group selections at any time of the year.
