American-Egyptian relations are at the core of what ARCE does, and chapters constitute a vital link in carrying out ARCE's mission of fostering broader knowledge and appreciation of Egypt among the general public in the United States.

ARCE chapters provide a forum for members to benefit from the abundant educational and cultural resources related to Egypt within their localities and beyond. Chapters are formed of individuals who share a professional or layman's interest in Egypt's art, archaeology, history, politics, and culture; many are based in or near cities with universities or museums institutionally affiliated with ARCE, and they provide a conduit for internationally known experts in fields related to Egypt to share the results of their recent research.


For information about affiliating with an existing ARCE chapter, please contact ARCE's Membership Coordinator, Maribeth Kalfoglou at 210-821-7000 or email


Chapters are located in a variety of cities and geographical areas. We welcome interest in starting new Chapters in cities where there is no ARCE presence. ARCE supports Chapters by offering membership rebates and reimbursements for meeting and lecture expenses. For more information about how to start a Chapter, please contact ARCE's Membership Coordinator, Maribeth Kalfoglou at 210-821-7000 or email
