Attention NYAC Members,

Below is a link to an interesting article based on a survey Pennsylvania conducted with the public on their opinions on how to share information about archaeology and how to mitigate endangered sites.

Perhaps NYAC can use this information in consideration of improving communication between our members and increasing our ability to reach and interact with the public.

Other possibilities being discussed include whether NYAC should have a ‘facebook’ page and open up a weblog section on our website.

Just a thought…
