  • Cancellation of 2020 NYSAA Conference & NYAC Annual Meeting

    The NYSAA conference is canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have already registered you will be refunded. If you have made a reservation at the Crowne Plaza hotel you must call and cancel. Please see the see below for further details.

    The Incorporated Orange County Chapter of NYSAA has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel this year’s annual NYSAA conference. Our local area in the Hudson Valley is experiencing a growing number of COVID-19 cases, and the health and safety of our members and guests is our number 1 priority. While we are very disheartened by these circumstances, we are glad to report that the 104th NYSAA meeting will now take place next year on April 23-25, 2021 at the Crowne Plaza Suffern-Mahwah. Registration information for next year will be available at a later date.

    Information regarding this cancellation:

    1. Registrants who have made hotel reservations, please contact the Crowne Plaza Suffern-Mahwah hotel directly to cancel your reservation.
    2. Registrants who have submitted their registrations with checks will be receiving either their undeposited checks back via mail, or a refund check from the IOCCNYSAA for those checks that have been deposited.

    3. For those that have submitted abstracts and poster proposals, we hope you will consider presenting next year. Please let IOCCNYSAA know if you would like to have your abstract kept on file for next year’s Call for Papers.

    We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the NYSAA executive board, NYAC, and our NYSAA membership for the guidance, support and understanding you have shown through this process. We wish all the best of health during this time and hope to see EVERYONE in a healthier and safer 2021.

    Sincerely, Stephanie Benson

    President, Incorporated Orange County Chapter NYSAA

New York Archaeology Council

NYAC Website

The New York Archaeological Council (NYAC) was founded to raise awareness of archaeology and archaeological issues of New York State: to provide information of general interest on the history and prehistory of New York as well as about the field of archaeology that provides insight into that history, to provide educational resources about archaeology, to provide information on the conduct of professional archaeology in New York, to serve as a point of reference for anyone that needs to consider archaeological resources in compliance with various laws and regulations that often come into play during construction projects, and to increase the awareness of New York Archaeology to the general public.

New York Archaeology Association

NYSAA Website

The New York State Archaeological Association (NYSAA) is composed of avocational and professional archaeologists primarily within New York State, though some of its members can be found throughout the world. NYSAA stands to promote archaeological and historical study, and research covering the artifacts, rites, customs, beliefs and other phases of the lives and cultures of the American Indian occupants of New York State up to and including their contact with the Europeans. Recently, the Association has expanded its focus to include research upon Euro-American archaeological sites post-dating European Contact.
