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
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.
