While much of the Chartered Institute’s efforts are focused on supporting members through the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board, Advisory Council and staff have continued planning for the long term. We are all beset by short-term changes, and the middle-term future is very opaque. In the longer term, though much will have changed, we are assuming that there will still be archaeology, there will continue to be a need for a professional institute for archaeologists, and that its purpose will be as now.
The Chartered Institute is its members. The elected and appointed members of the Board are responsible for finalising and implementing the new Strategic Plan on behalf of the members, but the plan is only as good as the ideas that have gone into it. The Board is therefore inviting comment from members on this draft plan for your Institute. Please send your views to firstname.lastname@example.org by 25 July 2020, or brief your Group’s Advisory Council representative by 30 May 2020 (in advance of its workshop on 4 June).
