Annual Meeting Registration Instructions and Event Details


The SCA Annual Meetings provide a platform for the sharing of data from active research in California and the regions that pertain to it, as well as the opportunity to discuss challenges to the practice of the discipline.

The SCA is the largest state archaeology society in the USA, with a membership hovering around 1100 individuals, and annual meetings that regularly attract upwards of 800. Membership is diverse and includes students, Native American tribal members, and professional archaeologists working in CRM, academia, agencies, Tribal offices, and Museums. The sharing of data allows attendees to gain a view of the status of archaeology throughout the region. Workshops and forums focus on timely issues and provide practical as well as research oriented skills training. SCA meetings are both intellectually stimulating and fun, and they offer ample opportunities for professional networking and socializing with a community of individuals who are interested in and have dedicated their careers to historic preservation and California archaeology.

The call for papers will go out in early October. Prepare to submit!
