Each year the ASV holds an annual meeting, generally in October. Usually held over three days in conjunction with the Council of Virginia Archaeologists (COVA), the meeting has a series of paper presentations, poster sessions, exhibits, a book room, an awards presentation, and a banquet that features a nationally known speaker. Meetings are held in various locations across the state. During the meeting weekend, the ASV conducts a business meeting to propose topics requiring membership approval and to elect officers and board members.
