We hope that all ARCE-PA members and Friends of ARCE-PA are doing well. 
Due to COVID 19 and the temporary closure of the Penn Museum our Spring 2020 Lecture series has been cancelled. However, ARCE-PA is working on tentative Fall 2020 lecture schedule.  We hope that we will be able to see you all in September once the Penn Museum reopens! 

For registered members of ARCE national and ARCE-PA, ARCE National is offering on-line lectures. 
These lectures are co-sponsored by both the ARCE National organizations and the North American chapters. At this point, the lectures occur every Saturday afternoon through June 2020.
