|RPA Affiliated Societies Program Information|
The Board of the Register of Professional Archaeologists approved an affiliated societies program for the Register at the January, 2015 Board meeting. That program would be open to state level archaeological professional councils, state archaeological societies, and regional, national, and international archaeological societies. The basic requirements for becoming an affiliated society will be for the society to embrace the Register's Code of Conduct and Standards of Research Performance as their own statement on ethics, and payment of an annual fee to the Register that is based on the size of their membership. The following fees will apply:
Members of affiliated societies who are not affiliated with one of the four supporting societies (Society for Historical Archaeology, Society for American Archaeology, American Anthropological Association, or the Archaeological Institute of America) will be eligible for an annual registration fee of $75. That is a $50 savings over the normal unaffiliated fee.
Those documents will be forwarded to the Register of Professional Archaeologist's Registrar for action.
