William Chadwick, director of IUP Archaeological Services, was elected to the Board of the Pennsylvania Archaeological Council for 2019.

The Pennsylvania Archaeological Council (PAC) is a statewide organization of professional archaeologists dedicated to promoting Pennsylvania archaeology. It is open to all professional archaeologists with graduate degrees in anthropology, archaeology or closely allied fields and an interest in Pennsylvania archaeology. PAC has an active public education program that sponsors an annual essay contest for middle school and junior high students on why archaeological sites should be preserved. It also sponsors a traveling series of poster exhibits, and maintains a speakers' bureau of professional archaeologists willing to speak to the public about archaeology. PAC has developed a curriculum packet for middle school students concerning archaeology in Pennsylvania and is working to place supporting materials at Intermediate Units throughout the state. PAC also actively monitors what is happening in compliance archaeology within the Commonwealth and consults with state and federal agencies concerning policy. PAC serves as a consulting party for a number of Pennsylvania Department of Transportation projects. The organization works to be a voice for archaeological concerns in legislative matters. The PAC Board guides the organization.
