The Affiliated Societies Program for the Register of Professional Archaeologists was approved by the Board at the January 2015 Board meeting. This program is 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 are 1) for the society to embrace the Register’s Code of Conduct and Standards of Research Performance as their own statement on ethics; and 2) the payment of an annual fee to the Register that is based on the size of their membership.
Affiliated Societies are billed for their annual dues each December for the following calendar year.
If a society is interested in becoming an affiliate of the Register, their annual fees are calculated as follows (please note that annual fees must be in US Dollars):
By becoming affiliated with The Register of Professional Archaeologists, you’re creating a valuable benefit for your members. Members of RPA-affiliated societies pay discounted registration/renewal fees. That’s a savings of $40 over the unaffiliated registration fee! Plus your members who are also registrants also get access to Register-exclusive content such as JSTOR, continuing education resources, and much more.
