Founded in 1902, the American Anthropological Association (AAA) is the world's largest organization of professional anthropologists. The AAA is governed by a 17-member Executive Board, elected by the membership. Members belong to one or more of 40 Sections. The leaders of these sections form a Section Assembly, which provides advice to the Executive Board on matters of policy, communications, and Association operations.
