Three Rivers Archaeological Society

Application for Membership

This is an invitation to join the Illinois Association for Advancement of Archaeology (IAAA). The Association was founded in 1969 to unite all persons interested in the archaeology of Illinois for the purposes of preserving prehistoric and historic aboriginal artifacts and sites, encouraging and participating in scientific investigation and study, and encouraging a constructive public attitude toward the archaeology of the State of Illinois and the immediate contiguous regions.

Even though the scientific approach is stressed, the Association offers much to those who are not so deeply involved. The person who surface collects and is interested in knowing what he has found will find answers through his attendance at meetings, through the Newsletters and bulletins, and through programs featuring knowledgeable people in the fields of archaeology and ethnology.

Membership in the state association is a prerequisite of joining one of the many local chapters over the state. Members of IAAA receive a quarterly newsletter and will receive other publications of the Association as they become available. Our membership includes a broad spectrum from the professional archaeologist to the high school student.
