Canadian Archaeological Institute at Athens (CAIA)
Potential New Members
As the Assistant of Outreach Enhancement at the Canadian Archaeological Institute at Athens (CAIA), one of my projects this year is to promote our Institute by attracting and contacting potential new members. The following are some of the reason I think you will be interested in becoming a member of CAIA, especially if you plan on visiting Greece or continuing to do  research.

CAIA was established 25 years ago in order to facilitate the expedition of permits for Canadians who wished to carry out research into the material culture of Greece, either through excavations or study.  If you are interested in researching anything to do with the material culture, Greek law requires you to obtain permission to study through an academic representative such as CAIA.  So as a member of CAIA, you are able to obtain permits through our Institute and our staff can help with the drafting of your letters and permit applications.  You probably know about the American and British Schools at Athens that have many Canadian members, however, it is less bureaucratic and simpler to work through the Canadian Institute when doing work in Greece.

In addition to the perk of a less expensive annual membership fee, as a CAIA member you receive free readerís privileges at all the foreign institutes and schools providing the most complete collection of published material concerning the ancient and medieval world.  Beyond facilitating research CAIA membership also enables you to obtain museum and archaeological site passes which allow for free unlimited admission.  For the minimal fee that you pay for the museum pass, you end up saving enormous amounts of money.  If the only sites you visited were the Acropolis, the Agora, and the Temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens, you would pay as much in admission fees as  the museum pass costs.

CAIA resides in an apartment containing its offices, a library, and a hostel.  The library is open for use everyday and provides a pleasant and quiet working environment.  The hostel accommodations are available to our members, and when the rooms are not vacant, the staff can help provide information about alternative accommodations at various other locations throughout the city.

CAIA is an important cultural institution in Athens providing Canadians the opportunity to study in Greece, and I look forward to welcoming many of you on your next visit to Greece.

Annual fees for student membership are $20 and for regular membership $30.  Please make cheques payable to our Canadian branch, the Canadian Academic Institute in Athens, 59 Queenís Park Crescent, Toronto, ON M5S 2C4. CAIA is a charitable institution under paragraph 149.1 (1) of the Income Tax Act.
