Regional Chapters

Members in the OAS are active regionally through our network of Chapters. These groups offer OAS members and the public local activities and events, and help develop local connections in the archaeological community across the province. Ranging from speaker nights to hosted excavations, research publications to web-based resources, Chapters are an essential part of the OAS and all members are encouraged to join Chapters, or start up a Chapter in their part of the Province if one does not exist currently.
