Every two years SAS has an election for a new Vice President. That person becomes President after two years. At this year's business meeting at the Society for American Archaeology meeting, President Thilo Rehren will step down, and current Vice President Sandra López Varela will take over as our new President. In the meantime, we are due to elect a new Vice President. We plan to have a slate ready for consideration by our members in mid-March. Please let us know if you have suggestions for whom we might consider.
Our officers have the opportunity to forge new directions for our organization. You can read the official responsibilities in our by-laws at the SAS web site.
