Membership Categories & Fees

Note: Dues are subject to change. Please apply on-line. You can email or mail required documents and you can pay by cheque or online by credit card or PayPal account.

Professional

$75/yr or $180/3yrs

A professional member receives all membership benefits, and has the right to vote in all APA matters and run for office. Applicants for this category must derive the majority of their income from the practice of archaeology. To qualify applicants need to:

  • Customarily make their livelihood from the profession of archaeology and/or from closely related disciplines or occupations, including under certain circumstances, field workers, teachers, cultural resource managers, research scientists, administrators, osteologists, zooarchaeologists and archaeobotanists.
  • Have demonstrated a competence in and commitment to archaeology, as determined on the basis of criteria such as a graduate education, publications in relevant journals, or other means.

Field Director

($50/yr or $120/3yrs)

Created in 2009 this category recognizes the importance of licenced Field Directors to our profession. Criteria are as follows: 

Field Director members (R licence holders) will be voting professional members but may sit on the Executive only after achieving full professional status with a P licence. 

A field director member will be appointed as liaison to the APA Executive.

Associate

($50/yr or $120/3yrs)

An associate member will receive the APA's newsletter but cannot vote or run for office. This category generally include: professionals in allied disciplines such as historical geography, or people who have been professional members but are currently retired or inactive in the field. Other archaeological professionals who are associate members will be urged to renew with professional status after a maximum of five years.

Student

($20/yr)

A student member will receive the APA's newsletter and receive member's discount on symposium and workshop attendance. This category includes: full time students in archaeology or other disciplines and graduates with a related degree currently working in the field. Although student members have no voting privileges, membership is an excellent opportunity for aspiring archaeologists to gain valuable experience and knowledge through their interaction with other members.

Institution

An institutional membership is not a voting membership, but does allow access to all portions of the members' only tabs. There is a developer tab specifically created to provide information with regards to conducting archaeological assessments. We encourage institutional members to draw on our membership list for consultants, as the APA has an ethics code that our members are obligated to follow. We also provide a members ad page, and a consultant list. We will, at no cost to institutional members, distribute RFP's to our members via email. If you have specific questions, you can contact us - see our Contact page or click here

Membership Discounts

With the recent growth of companies, it has come to APA’s attention, that there is room for membership discounts. Therefore, the APA executive recently passed a motion to grant a 20% discount to archaeological firms that apply for more than one membership at the Professional, Field Director or Associate Membership Levels.

Please obtain your discount coupon before applying for membership. Contact our Membership Director and provide a list of names for the membership and the membership level. You will be provided with a discount coupon code that your these applicants can use when they apply online.
