Affiliated membership is available to societies, clubs and groups, whether of local interest or of national specialist interest, so that they can have a voice in national matters and their members can be aware of what is happening in the wider field. By adding their strength to the AIA it increases our voice and position when representing industrial archaeology at a national or European level. Representatives may be nominated to exercise voting rights and all regular publications plus five copies of I A News are included. Attendance at events at AIA membership rates is available to the affiliated organisation’s members. Subscription details are given on our Membership page.
For questions about affiliation contact the Affiliated Societies officer on Council. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
MEETINGS and COVID-19
For a large part of 2020 and still now (as of January 2021), many of our Affiliated Societies have been unable to hold face to face events in the way they always have. But this does not mean they have to remain dormant. Increasingly groups are switching their meetings from physical to virtual allowing them to continue in a meaningful way and even extending awareness of their group to audiences far beyond local and even national boundaries.
All IA groups have difficulty identifying good speakers for their meetings and adding the requirement of being able to give a talk ‘virtually’ might make that problem even harder. So, in the light of this, the AIA is creating an index of speakers willing to give IA related talks face-to-face but also, crucially, indicating whether they are willing to present virtually. The list is now available to Affiliated Societies.
At this time [ 6 Nov 2020 ] the list is quite short and it can only grow and become useful if you also contribute to it. Can you or anyone in your group tell us about good speakers you’ve heard who might be willing to speak to other groups? Or would you be able to give a presentation yourself? Just because a talk you heard, or gave, was on a local or specialist topic doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be of wider interest.

If your society is not listed perhaps it should consider affiliating to the AIA and help support the promotion of industrial archaeology.
