Individuals must be nominated or endorsed by an active member of the Council. The Executive Board recommends advancing the application to the membership for final approval.
Members almost always have a postgraduate degree with a research specialization in archeology or allied field. They are concerned with the problems of West Virginia archeology as evidenced by direct employment in or published work on the archaeology of the state. Members generally meet RPA standards.
In some cases, an advanced degree is not required for membership if the applicant can demonstrate equivalent professional qualifications through publications, reports, and experience.
Organizational Liaisons are individuals who are invited to participate in the corporation by virtue of the position they hold in another organization or institution. Institutions or organizations with an interest in West Virginia archaeology may petition the Executive Board for a position.
