Annual Meeting Reports, Resolutions, and Award Citations


The year of 2020 has been extraordinary in many ways. Ordinarily, the Southeastern Archaeological Conference would hold its annual meeting in the fall, bringing together 600-700 archaeologists. The 2020 annual meeting was scheduled for Durham, NC, from October 28-31. However, by May, it was clear that the COVID-19 pandemic would prevent us from meeting face-to-face in 2020. In order to keep communication open among SEAC’s Executive Committee (its governing body), its committees and task forces, and its members, this web site provides the information that ordinarily would be presented at the annual Business Meeting, traditionally held on the Friday evening of the annual meeting. We provide here printed reports from officers, committees, and task forces, as well as memorial resolutions for those archaeological colleagues who died since the 2019 meeting, ceremonial resolutions, and citations for SEAC’s annual awards. We held a virtual Business Meeting on November 6, 2020, a video of which you can watch below.

The next SEAC annual meeting is scheduled for the Durham, NC, Convention Center from October 24-27, 2021. I fervently hope we will be able to meet in person at that time. More information will appear on the website in Spring 2021.
