CIfA launch and AGM 2015 11 December 2014

A step forward for the archaeological profession: CIfA launch and AGM 2015

 

CIfA

 

Tuesday 9 December 2014 saw the formal launch of the Chartered Institute of Archaeologists – a momentous occasion for both the professional body and the profession of archaeology. CIfA is the leading professional body representing archaeology in the UK and its successful application for Chartered status, winning an order of grant from the Privy Council in February 2014 and the Charter itself in June, provides recognition from the state that the profession of archaeology is working in the interests of the public and that the Institute is the proper body to regulate the conduct of the profession.

The AGM and event, attended by over 200 members and interested parties, introduced CIfA’s new Board of Directors and Advisory Council, both of which will begin their new cycle of meetings in 2015. The Board of Directors, up to 12 strong, has legal responsibility for CIfA; and the Advisory Council comprises up to 20 elected accredited members up to 20 representatives from CIfA’s Area and Special Interest Groups.

Those attending the event heard reflective and visionary talks from Diana Murray (Joint Chief Executive, RCAHMS and Historic Scotland and former Chair of IfA), from CIfA Chair, Jan Wills, and from Natalie Ward and Ben Jervis, founding committee members of the CIfA New Generation SIG.
