- American Anthropological Association- Regarded as the "world's largest scholarly and professional organization of anthropologists," the AAA advances the field of Anthropology in several ways. First, they host an annual conference where anthropologists from all professional spheres come together to discuss the most pressing anthropological topics. These meetings are open to students and established academics alike and are great opportunities to connect with the national population of anthropologists from all career levels. Furthermore, join their sections and interest groups to deepen your knowledge and experience in specific fields of anthropological practice. These sections and interest groups also host AAA sponsored meetings annually. For students and amateur anthropologists, they frequently post field school and internship opportunities from global programs taking student applicants. Among all these offerings, they oversee twenty-two published journals, award prizes and fellowships, and provide career planning and professional development services.
- National Association for the Practice of Anthropology- This is an AAA section for applied and practicing anthropologists. They offer a mentorship program for all those pursuing a career in anthropology, including students.
- General Anthropology Division- This is the AAA section for General Anthropology. The GAD manages a wide range of interest groups including the History of Anthropology Interest Group, the Federation of Small Anthropology Programs, and the Committee for the Anthropology of Science, Technology and Computing.
