We have just sent out the next Kewa (14(1-2)) which members should receive shortly. Of importance the Kewa includes this announcement about pending choices of a new London Chapter Executive for 2015:

On another front, traditionally the executive of the London Chapter has been elected or put together from volunteers/recruits at our annual Christmas party. However, attendance at the Christmas party these days is often small (especially if the weather is not very good) and it is often the same diehards that show up. Thus, we often end up with the same executive members (who, like Ellis, may not be that enthusiastic about continuing in an executive role!) and do not get much new blood in the organization, especially amongst the younger members. Also, because it is not done anonymously, other members may be shy about putting their names forward. Hence, we decided at the February 2105 meeting to go back to the old way of getting an executive by forming a nominating committee. If you wish to stand for a particular executive position (President, Vice-President, Treasurer and as many directors as we would like), or want to nominate someone for such a position, please contact a member of the nominating committee directly by phone or by email. The nominating committee consists of Chris Ellis (cjellis@uwo.ca; 519-661-2111, ext. 85081) and Dana Poulton (drpoulton@rogers.com). Nominations will remain open until March 20, 2015 and we will hold an election, if necessary, as soon as possible after the nominations close.

Due to delays in mailing we have decided to put the closing date for nominations back until March 30th, 2015. If you wish to stand for office or nominate someone else, please contact Dana or Chris as soon as possible.

The next London Chapter Meeting will be held on Thursday, April 9, 2015...

....at the Museum of Ontario Archaeology. The speaker will be Jon Dunlop of Archaeological Services Inc., Toronto and UWO Anthropology talking about recent research on a significant Archaic site in the Kitchener-Waterloo area in a presentation entitled:  AiHd-160; Sites, Scales and Activity . See you there! As usual doors open at 7:30 and the meeting begins at 8 PM. Free juice and cookies!

The Kewa...
We are behind in the issuing of our newsletter Kewa for the simple reason people have not been submitting papers for publication (Issues 13[2 to 6] have just been released ). The Kewa is a great way to get into a more accessible form important data, information and ideas about the archaeology of Ontario. Short reports on sites excavated through CRM activities are especially welcome. There must be lots of CRM reports out there that could be easily cleaned up and published. More and more sites are found each year and yet less are published -- and unless they are published the data might as well not exist -- see Chris Ellis' editorial from Kewa 10(3-4) by clicking here! Contact co-editor Chris Ellis if you have something of interest: cjellis@uwo.ca.
