American Anthropological Association

Website: www.aaanet.org/

Founded in 1902, the American Anthropological Association (AAA) is the world's largest organization of individuals interested in anthropology.  Although there were several other American anthropological societies in existence at the turn of the 20th century, this new, national organization was formed "to promote the science of anthropology, to stimulate and coordinate the efforts of American anthropologists, to foster local and other societies devoted to anthropology, to serve as a bond among American anthropologists and anthropologic [al] organizations present and prospective, and to publish and encourage the publication of matter pertaining to anthropology" (AAA Articles of Incorporation).
