Attention MAAC Members and Students...

The Middle Atlantic Archaeology Conference of 2015 will be held at the Clarion in Ocean City, MD from March 12-15. To register, please go here. In addition, MAAC will have it's MAAC Student Committee group. Please follow MAACSC on facebook and read the details below:

The MAAC Student Committee is a group for current and recent undergraduate and graduate students within the Middle Atlantic Archaeological Conference. We provide student themed events at the annual conference and work to encourage interest among students in professional archaeology. The MAAC Student Committee communicates important information to students and young professionals within the conference membership. We serve as a liaison between student members and the MAAC Board.

The Student Committee will be holding its first two events at the 2015 conference in Ocean City, Maryland. On Friday afternoon we will be hosting an exploratory meeting to determine interest in membership and the goals of the committee. During this informal roundtable, we will discuss what members want from the committee and what would best serve them, as students and young professionals. All MAAC members are welcome to attend and contribute ideas to the formation of this new committee.

The second event will be held on Saturday evening at the Clarion Hotel, just prior to the Reception. The Student Committee invites you to attend the first annual Student Mixer. Students are invited to talk, laugh, dance and enjoy each other’s company. Dance music will be provided. Students are also invited to participate in an optional “Pick & Play.” (Students would need to bring their own acoustic instruments, no formal equipment will be provided). This social networking opportunity is open to student members only.
