CIfA Annual General Meeting 2022

2022 Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting will be held at 1:00pm (GMT) on Tuesday 11 October via Zoom. Booking details for this will be released closer to the meeting date, and all members are invited to attend.

Call for nominations for the Board of Directors and Advisory Council

Accredited members of CIfA are invited to stand for election to the Board of Directors or Advisory Council of the Chartered Institute.

  • Board of Directors - there are four vacancies for the Board of Directors including the position of Honorary Treasurer.

  • Advisory Council - there are vacancies for eight elected members of the Advisory Council.

Accredited members at any stage in their career are encouraged to stand for election. We are looking for individuals with enthusiasm and insight, and we would particularly encourage nominations from people who would make both bodies more diverse. For Board candidates we are also looking for individuals with the appropriate skills to meet the duties required for the Board.

Candidate forms must be submitted by 5pm on Friday 2 September 2022 and emailed to alex.llewellyn [at] archaeologists.net. Accredited members will be invited to vote for candidates in a ballot if the number of candidates exceeds the number of vacancies. Ballot papers, accompanied by information and an election statement of the candidates, will be distributed to members and the ballot will run from 14 September to 30 September 2022 inclusive.

Interested in getting involved?
Volunteering with CIfA offers a unique opportunity to help develop your professional institute. Accredited members are encouraged to get involved by putting themselves forward to support the governance and development of the Institute. Volunteering also provides a variety of CPD benefits, not only from being part of these discussions but also through networking with colleagues and benefiting from sharing advice and experiences.

You can find out more about what is discussed at Advisory Council and Board meetings by looking at the meeting minutes published on the website www.archaeologists.net/members/councilminutes. You can also find out more about volunteering for CIfA on our get involved page.

Any member thinking of standing is welcome to have an informal discussion with the Hon Chair by contacting alex.llewellyn [at] archaeologists.net.
