    Hi all,

     

    We are excited to announce that the program for the upcoming Southwest Symposium Conference (January 30th -February 1st 2020) in Tempe, Arizona is available online here: 

    https://southwestsymposium.org/program/ 

     

    We have an exciting program lined up with three organized sessions, a forum, and posters covering a diverse range of topics, time periods, and regions across the U.S. Southwest and Mexican Northwest. Please help us spread the word. It would be especially helpful for those of you who have networks that include avocational archaeologists or volunteers to reach out to them. Reduced rate early registration is open until December 30th. Thank you to those of you who have already registered. Early registration helps us cut costs by allowing us to better estimate numbers for printing/bags/coffee/etc.

     

    We hope to see you there in January. Have a great week and a great New Year!

     

    Thanks,

     

    Matt Peeples, President of the Southwest Symposium Organization
