Membership

There are many benefits to joining the Pre-Columbian Society of Washington, D.C. Membership offers the unique opportunity to join a community of scholars and passionate individuals who seek knowledge of the civilizations of the Americas before Columbus.

Members receive a monthly newsletter, the Smoking Mirror, which features summaries of monthly guest lectures, articles pertaining to pre-Columbian studies, and a calendar of Society events. The newsletter also includes announcements of upcoming pre-Columbian-related meetings and events locally and nationwide.

Members have access to the Society's Library, which includes books and journals covering the archaeology, art history, anthropology, and art history of the New World.

The Society helps organize and promote Special Interest Groups (SIGs), like a monthly book club, for its members. These forums explore specific subjects in pre-Columbian studies such as reading Maya hieroglyphs.

Society members may also participate in elections and serve as officers.


The PCSWDC has three membership categories, each for a 12-month period. For each of those options you can elect to pay for one year at a time, or you can use the subscribe option and we will debit you designated payment method each year when it becomes due (you will receive an email notification prior to the transaction). All online transactions are made through Paypal service. You do not need a Paypal account to purchase your membership.
