The Indian Peaks Chapter of the Colorado Archaeological Society is honored to host the 85th Annual Meeting of the Colorado Archaeological Society on September 25-26, 2020. In consideration of COVID-19 safety concerns, this year’s conference will be virtual, delivered through Google Meet.
One of the goals for this conference is to replicate as many of the same experiences that you’d have at an in-person conference. This conference will feature:
- Fewer and longer paper presentations,
- A keynote address from Dr. Spencer Pelton,
- Select workshops,
- Welcome with happy hour and trivia,
- Colorado Archaeological Society Annual Membership Meeting, and
- Colorado Archaeological Society Executive Board Meeting.
Another goal of this conference is to make it open and accessible for existing members and prospective members. Conference admission is free. Registration is still required to access live events. Register now through Member365 for the conference and workshops. Note that each conference participant should register on their own even if they are part of a joint or family CAS membership.
If you are able, the Indian Peaks Chapters asks that you donate what you would have paid for registration to the conference on behalf of the Alice Hamilton Scholarship Fund. The Indian Peaks Chapter is allocating 50% of all event proceeds to the Alice Hamilton Scholarship Fund, especially since there will not be a raffle or silent auction to benefit the scholarship program.
That’s not all! Thank you gifts for conference supporters are available for each $20 donated through the event, including bandanas featuring original artwork from IPCAS’s resident artist Gretchen Acharya as well as a revival of the Handy Hypotenuse Hankie™. Additionally, all conference supporters will receive a digital copy of Bill and Marcia Tate’s The Archaeologist’s Cookbook.
