  • Provide a forum for open discussion and debate of matters of mutual interest to its members;

  • Furnish a means collectively to respond to consultations and proposals from government bodies, or other organizations relating directly or indirectly to the teaching and researching of archaeology in the context of higher education and the archaeological profession;

  • Represent and promulgate the collective view of its members in any matters of mutual interest or concern relating directly or indirectly to archaeology within the higher education system;
