The ARA meets generally three times per year. The Winter Technical Presentations and Annual Meeting is held in January. The Spring ARA Campout is genarally held in April. The Fall ARA Campout is generally held in September. The meetings are usually held on the fourth weekend of the month and are open to anyone having an interest in Arizona caving. The "Winter Technical" normally rotates between Central or Northern Arizona and Southern Arizona on alternating years. The Spring ARA is generally held in Southern Arizona (warmer weather) and the Fall ARA is generally held in Northern Arizona (cooler weather). All dates and locations are dependent upon the host Grotto and are determined at the meeting previous.
