As you may have heard, ARCE’s United States headquarters is moving from San Antonio, TX to Alexandria, VA this spring.  Starting June 1, 2017, you will be able to reach us at the following address and phone number:
American Research Center in Egypt
909 North Washington Street, Suite 320
Alexandria, VA 22314
In order to facilitate the move, ARCE’s membership computer system will be down from April 30-May 8, 2017 which will delay our processing of memberships and other contributions. If you need any assistance during this time, please contact us by telephone at 703-721-3479 or by email at
We appreciate your understanding and patience during the move. 



ARCE individual members constitute a vital element of the Center's mission and number some twelve hundred individual members throughout the U.S. and beyond.
