ARCHON activities are organized in close collaboration with, and hosted by its member institutions. In addition, ARCHON plays a representative role in the academic world of Dutch Archaeology (including commercial Archaeology), namely as part of the MALTA-committee and as a representative in the Central Committee of Experts (CCvD).
ARCHON is directed by a board, who meets around four times a year. The educational tasks are delegated to the bureau and the scientific director. As of the 1st of January 2011 the ARCHON secretariat is established at the Faculty of Archaeology of Leiden University. The secretariat takes care of ‘daily affairs’ and the communication, coordination and organisation of educational activities, and consists of:
Dr. Alexander Geurds, scientific director
Barbara Oosterwijk MA, coordinator
