St Louis, Glad I don't live There

New AIA Statement on the St. Louis SocietyNovember 4, 2014
the actions of the St. Louis Society have seriously compromised the Archaeological Institute of America itself as an organization that upholds the value of preserving, studying and presenting the record of the human past for the benefit of future generations. At its meeting on October 25, 2014 in Providence, Rhode Island, the Governing Board decided to instruct the Executive Committee of the AIA to conduct a hearing on whether the AIA Charter granted to the St. Louis Society in 1906 should be suspended or revoked. 
Meanwhile, the promised statement about the AIA having "a strong stance against the sale of antiquities" in general which Executive Director of the Archaeological Institute of America, Dr Anne Benbow, promised further news on seems to have fallen by the wayside.
