Call to Action!

Now that the 2023 Conference has come to an end, the CMA is looking ahead to our next initiatives. We are looking for CMA members to join one or both of the following two committees:

2025 CMA Conference Planning Committee: In this committee you will join other members in planning the next conference. This includes securing a venue (we already have an interested potential venue), creating timelines, sending out Calls for Papers, pursuing funding routes, and getting the word out. Please contact President Jammi Ladwig (ladwi020@umn.edu) with your interest. This is an open call – hop in any time!

Student Outreach and Education Committee: This committee will focus on reaching out to both active students and recent graduates to help teach them about the CRM industry and how to become a part of it. Discussed initiatives could include a careers fair (aiming Feb. 2024), giving classroom talks, providing mentorships, or hosting open lab nights. Please contact President Jammi Ladwig (email above) with your interest. As above, this is also an open call for committee members. Interested members can request to join at any time.

Membership is open to professionals in archaeology and related disciplines who work in the state or have an on-going research interest in Minnesota. The Council serves as a forum for the exchange of news and ideas about Minnesota archaeology through membership meetings, a newsletter, and occasional symposia.
