Greetings NYAC Board and Membership. The New York Archaeological Council (NYAC) held our spring 2021 meeting via Zoom on Friday, April 23 with the Board meeting from 12:30-2:00 p.m. followed by the general membership meeting from 2:30-4:40 PM. This was our first membership meeting since the cancellation of last year’s spring meeting due to COVID and it was great to see everyone. The Board has met remotely twice since our last meeting as a group. Updates about our activities were provided at the spring meeting and some are included here in the newsletter. We had a lively and enjoyable conversation and admitted three new members to our ranks this April. Please welcome Nathan Allison, Ryan Austin, and John Garbellano as new NYAC members. Please be aware that we are looking forward to seeing everyone in person again at the joint meeting with the 104th Annual Meeting of the NYSAA, to be held April 22-24, 2022 at the Crowne Plaza Suffern-Mahwah, in Suffern, New York. The NYSAA conference, hosted by the Incorporated Orange County Chapter, is again postponed until next year, to be held at the same venue and we look forward to joining them at that time. Please accept this friendly reminder to be sure your membership dues are paid for 2021 and that all Board members must complete their ‘Conflict of Interest’ policy forms annually.

As you know, The New York Archaeological Council (NYAC) cancelled the spring 2020 meeting on March 13 in response to the earlier decision by the New York State Archaeological Association (NYSAA) that was predicated by the Governor’s COVID-19 response. We are looking forward to seeing everyone again soon, but we obviously needed to postpone the meeting given the state of affairs in New York. We were, as usual, planning a joint meeting with the 104th Annual Meeting of the NYSAA, to be held April 24-26 at the Crowne Plaza Suffern-Mahwah, in Suffern, New York. The NYSAA conference, hosted by the Incorporated Orange County Chapter, is postponed until next year, to be held at the same venue and we look forward to joining them. In lieu of the spring meeting here is an update of recent events and activities.
