Officers and Board of Directors

The Society for Applied Anthropology (SfAA) was founded in 1941 to promote the investigation of the principles of human behavior and the application of these principles to contemporary issues and problems. Since that time membership has expanded to over 2,000. The Society now sponsors two major journals (Human Organization and Practicing Anthropology) as well as a Monograph Series and occasional special publications. The Society has become the preeminent international organization in the field.

The Society is unique among professional associations. In membership and purpose, it represents the interests of professionals in a wide range of work settings -- academia, business, law, health and medicine, public and government, etc. Members come from a variety of disciplines -- anthropology, sociology, economics, business, planning, medicine, nursing, law, and other related social/behavioral sciences. The unifying factor is a commitment to the mission of our association -- professionals from a variety of backgrounds who are making an impact on the quality of life in the world today.


During the 2017 Annual Business Meeting of SfAA in Santa Fe, the name of outgoing Board Member, Alicia Re Cruz, was incorrect during a PowerPoint presentation. We regret the error.
