Committee Charge & Composition

Description
This committee recommends policy positions on specific non-United States government issues to the SAA President and Board of Directors. These activities are directed by the Chair of the International Government Affairs Committee and they are carried out by IGAC members, who may draw on advice from a pool of previously identified experts in other countries. While the IGAC and GAC are independent committees it is expected that they will coordinate through the manager Government Affairs when needed, (e.g. US bilateral agreements with foreign governments). A Chair and up to 10 members, representing major politico-geographic regions and archaeology sectors (academic, CRM, governmental). The manager, Government Affairs serves as staff liaison to the committee.
