Pioneer America Society
The Pioneer America Society: Association for the Preservation of Artifacts and Landscapes (PAS:APAL) is a professional and scholarly organization formed to promote dialogue and discourse among its diverse membership. It exists to promote and support the serious study of material culture, in all its forms, and ongoing efforts of documentation and preservation of these artifacts extant in the Americas. The Society is an international, non-profit, educational association supported entirely by membership dues and contributions. Its membership is drawn from various academic disciplines (geography, history, anthropology, folklore), applied professions (architects, lawyers, preservationists, educators), along with informed and interested parties that enjoy the pursuit of interpreting the visual landscape and adding to the list of scholarly research.
PAS is governed by an Executive Board consisting of a Director, Editors of the Society’s two publications, a Secretary, a Treasurer, and a Newsletter Coordinator. Annual dues and contributions are tax deductible.
