We are very pleased to announce that IfA have a appointed a new temporary editor. As advertised earlier this year, we were looking for someone to take over Amanda Forster's role as editor for the coming year, so she can concentrate her efforts on IfA's recruitment activities and on spreading the word about our successful bid for Chartered status.
Lisa Westcott Wilkins will be taking on the role of editor for the next year, and will be collating, editing and delivering the next four issues of the magazine, as well as the editorial content for the 2015 IfA Yearbook. We are really happy to have Lisa on board - she brings with her a lot of valuable experience, including her work as editor for Current Archaeology, the Cultural Olympiad and as a managing director of Digventures.
The next issue of the magazine will hit your doormats in July this year, and look out for calls for articles for the following issues. Jen and Lianne, IfA's Membership Services Coordinators, will continue to deal with your Member news and updates from Registered Organisations.
You can contact Lisa by email at lisa [at] digventures.com for queries relating to The Archaeologist, and for any submissions or ideas for forthcoming feature articles.
For member news, please email Lianne Birney (lianne.birney [at] archaeologists.net) and for Registered Organisations update, please contact Jen Parker Wooding (jen.wooding [at] archaeologists.net).
