... The Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) creates partnership with EAA

In September 2011, representatives from the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) attended the 17th Annual Meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA) in Oslo. Although individual members from both the AIA and EAA have attended and presented at each other's' annual meetings over the years, this was the first time that the AIA was formally represented at an EAA Annual Meeting. AIA representatives met with several members of the EAA Executive Committee and discussed the possibility of greater cooperation and joint programming between the two organizations. The AIA would like to see this as the beginning of a long and mutually beneficial partnership that will allow for a greater and more efficient exchange of ideas and scholarship between the two groups. 

To mark the formal start of this relationship, the AIA and EAA are embarking on several joint initiatives. These include publicizing each other's events to their respective memberships, encouraging members to submit papers and participate in each other's conferences, and sending materials for publication and making announcements in each other's newsletters. For immediate consideration by EAA members, the AIA is happy to announce that EAA members who wish to attend the AIA Annual Meeting in Philadelphia from 5-8 January 2012 will be able to do so at the discounted rate generally reserved for AIA members.

Representatives of the AIA look forward to attending the EAA meeting in 2012 and welcome EAA members to all Institute events and programs.
