GRIEVANCE HOTLINE: 1-410-246-2150

One of the major goals of the Register of Professional Archaeologists is to provide and enforce the organization’s Code of Conduct (Code) and the Standards of Research Performance (Standards). The grievance hotline connects you directly to the Grievance Coordinator, avoiding office staff and intermediaries, for confidential consultation and information. Find out more  (For non-Grievance queries, please call 1-574-274-9346.)


COVID-19 Information:

The Register of Professional Archaeologists commits to maintaining all appropriate sanitary, health, and safety measures and encourage registrants to follow guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. Thank you for your continued support.



The Register values on-going professional development, however, the proposal to require continuing education credits has been tabled by the Board of Directors due to the COVID-19 crisis. We will revisit this issue in the fall or whenever it seems appropriate to do so. No continuing education credits will be required for at least the rest of 2020.
