AAA Annual Business Meeting

Friday, November 11, 2022 6:30 to 8:00 PM

The Business Meeting provides an opportunity for AAA members to present resolutions or make motions for consideration and potential adoption by the Association. Resolutions are written statements of position or action, typically dealing with matters of substance and/or complexity. The meeting also provides an opportunity to hear reports from the President, Officers, and different Committee Chairs on actions the association has discussed during the previous year. The AAA by-laws require that a quorum of 250 members in good standing be present to transact official business at the Meeting.

Anthropologists Go Back to School

Date and time TBD

To better connect the Annual Meeting with its host city, the AAA promotes Anthropologists Go Back to School, an initiative in which meeting attendees introduce elementary, middle, and high school learners to the discipline of anthropology.

Since 2013, the program has offered age-appropriate, interactive activities that highlight all four fields. Its primary goal is to reach out to schools with high concentrations of students of color and students who will be among the first in their families to attend college. Presenters highlight the incredible contributions that anthropologists make to social justice and how anthropology can be an avenue to social change and a potential career path.
