to read AIA's statement in full
In these unsettled times, we are taking our directions from our ancient past, becoming resilient, creative, and optimistic. We are planning our fall lecture series, which will be broadcast on the internet rather than held live in Washington DC, due to concerns around COVID-19. We are hoping our spring lectures might be held in an auditorium but we will likely continue to be streaming them for the foreseeable future. To stay informed, please make sure your email address is up to date. You may contact the AIA Membership Department at firstname.lastname@example.org, reminding them you are a member of the Washington DC society.
If you would like to join, please visit www.archaeological.org.
