At the launch of the Chartered Institute of Archaeologists in December 2014, we announced our intention to start consulting members and the sector on the desirability of amending the Charter in future to allow us to confer Chartered status on individual members. In order to start the discussion, we held a series of workshops across the UK over the autumn and winter. The purpose of the workshops was to explore the idea of archaeologists becoming individually chartered in alignment with other professions. As part of a series of consultations we want to explore the notion of individual chartership and whether the sector will benefit from the formalisation of professional accreditation. You can read a discussion report summarising the results of the workshops here
A survey was included in the above report and this closed on 20 May. The results will be announced soon.
