Congratulations to CIfA Registered Organisation Allen Archaeology, winners of the 2017 Archaeology Training Forum Award for their Commercial Archaeology Trainee Scheme. This year's highly commended award went to another RO, Worcestershire Archives and Archaeology Service for their NVQ3 Training Programme for Field Archaeologists. The ATF Award recognises excellence in training, learning and professional development and was presented by Robin Turner, Chair of ATF at the CIfA Conference in Newcastle.
The Institute for Archaeologists is the leading professional body representing archaeologists working in the UK and overseas. We promote high professional standards and strong ethics in archaeological practice, to maximise the benefits that archaeologists bring to society. In December this year we will be launching the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists following receipt of our Royal Charter in June 2014.
Mark Collard, Hon Vice Chair Personnel and Membership, and Nick Shepherd, Hon Vice Chair Standards have both had to step down from their Executive Committee duties due to work commitments but will remain on Council until the end of their term of office. This resulted in two vacancies on the Executive committee, and in these circumstances current members of Council are asked to co-opt individuals to replace these vacancies until the next AGM.
