‘The AIA is the national organisation for people who share an interest in Britain’s industrial past. It brings together groups and individuals with an interest and expertise in identifying, recording, preserving and presenting the remains of the industrial past ... Affiliated membership is available to societies, clubs and groups, whether of local interest or of national specialist interest, so that they can have a voice in national matters and their members can be aware of what is happening in the wider field. By adding their strength to the AIA it increases our voice and position when representing industrial archaeology at a national or European level.‘
