Thank you to all who attended our meeting on January 16th. I was happy to meet several new faces to the organization and I hope to meet many more over the next year. Our main goal in the next year is to recruit more members and to continue to offer opportunities for members to participate in various public outreach events.  Such opportunities include: volunteering on an ASNJ archaeology dig, sharing an artifact find with the ASNJ website, attending a meeting, or offering a submission to our ASNJ bulletin or newsletter. Remember, you don't have to be a professional archaeologist to be an ASNJ member. We have a desire to enhance your experience with New Jersey heritage and archaeology. You can be a professional, a student or an enthusiast. Membership fees help cover the cost of our events as well as produce our publications in a timely manner. If you are interested in joining ASNJ, please visit the Membership page on our website.
