Promoting archaeological inquiry and public understanding of the diverse cultures of the human past


AIA Congratulates the Archaeological Institute of America Jacksonville Society for winning the 2024 Golden Trowel Award!

Between July 1, 2022, and June 30, 2023, the Jacksonville Society grew an impressive 43%.
AIA appreciates all Society Officers who work hard to retain current members and attract new members to the Institute.

Local Societies need membership in order to host lectures and create other programs and in recent years the AIA has established some incentives to help Societies grow.

The Golden Trowel Award honors the Society whose membership proportionally increases the most during the past fiscal year (July 1st to June 30th). We would like to commend all our Society Officers for managing their Societies so well and for enticing new people to join.
