COVID-19 Information:

The Register of Professional Archaeologists prioritizes the health and safety of our registrants. On March 23rd, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan issued an executive order that closes all non-essential business. For this reason, the RPA HQ is currently unable to process any checks, or faxed payment information, for open invoices. All payments will have to be made online via credit card until further notice. As a reminder, each invoice you receive via email will have a direct payment link at the bottom of the email. If you or your organization, have specific instructions regarding processing credit card payments please contact our Financial Manager, Kalu Azu. Please note if you have already mailed a check to the RPA HQ, we will be unable to process your payment at this time. Thank you for your continued support. 

The organization 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.
