2020 Executive Program Committee

The Executive Program Committee (EPC), selected and chaired by the Annual Meeting Program Chair, works with the Chair and AAA President to set the annual meeting theme. Committee members represent the sub-fields, interests, and practices of sociocultural, linguistic, biological anthropology, and archaeology, as well as other member constituencies. The Chair of the Executive Program Committee is appointed by the AAA President and is responsible for ensuring that the annual meeting is open to and welcoming of all member constituencies, showcases the general relevance of anthropology to the understanding of the human condition, and promotes anthropology’s relevance to contemporary ethical, social, cultural, and policy issues. The EPC is responsible for peer reviewing all Executive Session submissions

Learn more about this year's EPC. The American Anthropological Association thanks the 2020 Executive Program Committee for the volunteering of their time, expertise, and review of the Annual Meeting program.
