There are three categories of membership within the Association. These are:
- Full Members - these individuals are fully qualified and experienced consultants, usually with a broad range of research and management skills. Full Members often act as senior heritage project managers. They have demonstrated ability and have been through an accreditation process in the organisation. Areas of expertise include site survey and recording, excavation, analysis and interpretation and, importantly, the assessment of site significance. Full Members may use the post-nominal MAACAI as a professional qualification;
- Associate Members - Associates are usually earlier career members who hold appropriate qualifications in archaeology and who are still increasing their levels of work experience and management skills;
- Affiliate Members - are professionals who are not currently practising consultants but who, through their professional occupation as academics or in the public sector, maintain links with the Association.
