CIfA occasionally publishes briefings to support and communicate our advocacy work.
Briefings are short documents which
- Provide up to date information on issues of interest to CIfA (e.g. policy reform)
- Set out CIfA's advocacy position and response to particular issues or events
- Summarise CIfA's advocacy activity related to issues and events
- Present statements for use by third parties in news stories or for general information
CIfA briefings are sent to media contacts, parliamentarians, other heritage organisations and wider professional colleagues, as well as to registered organisations and individual members, as appropriate.
CIfA policy statements are produced to set out a background and explication of CIfA's advocacy position.
If you are interested in receiving CIfA briefings by email, please send a request to rob.lennox [at] archaeologists.net.
