The FAS Board presented four Certificates of Achievement for the outstanding efforts to organize and present the 2018 FAS Annual Meeting. These certificates acknowledge educational outreach efforts in the Greater Tampa Bay area. The recipients are Central Gulf Coast Archaeological Society (CGCAS), the Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) West Central and Central Offices, Alliance for Weedon Island Archaeological Research and Education (AWIARE), and University of South Florida (USF) Anthropology Department.

These organizations have demonstrated the importance of collaborations to promote public outreach, preservation, and student learning in various aspects of Florida anthropology and archaeology, while engaging community  members and stakeholders. We also thank these recipients for organizing the 2019 FAS Annual Meeting. These organizations and their members are exemplary in showing how FAS chapters, public agencies, nonprofit organizations, and academic departments can work together to support the objectives and goals of FAS.
