Louisiana Archaeological Survey and Antiquities Commission
The Louisiana Archaeological Survey and Antiquities Commission was established in 1974 to promote the goals and objectives of the Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism and to act in an advisory capacity to that department and its secretary in their administration of Chapter 13 and in matters relating to antiquities, archaeology, and other cultural resources.
The Commission consists of eleven members: the state archaeologist, one representative from the Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, one representative from the Department of Natural Resources, one representative from the Governor's Office of Indian Affairs, and seven additional members appointed by the governor. At least one of the appointed members shall also be a member of the Louisiana Archaeological Society.
The Commission has regularly scheduled meetings that are open to the public.
