President's Address
Spring, 2024



Greetings everyone!

I hope you are all having a wonderful start to the new year! I am excited to be your president for 2024 with a goal to have a productive year for the New Mexico Archeological Council (NMAC). NMAC held a successful and informative Annual Meeting last fall highlighting archaeology on federal land. The planning for the 2024 Annual Meeting is already underway and more details will be provided soon, so stay tuned. The NMAC 2024 Annual Meeting will be November 9th at the Hibben Center, University of New Mexico.

The NMAC Executive Committee met in early March for our first quarterly meeting of 2024. We have several new volunteers who have stepped up this year to fill vacancies on the Executive Committee, including President-Elect Evan Giomi and Secretary Alissa Healy. Natalie Frodsham has become the Webmaster and has already worked hard to update our website and make it secure. Please all go check out the updated website (https://nmarchcouncil.org/). Robin Cordero is now co-chairing the Workshop Committee. A full list of NMAC officers and committee chairs who are serving this year is provided on page 13 of this newsletter.

NMAC is in the planning stages of creating several workshops in coordination with agencies aimed at educating professionals across New Mexico. This includes workshops on various topics focused on analysis and field trips to specific sites to foster skills in archaeology and historic preservation. More information will be coming on these exciting topics. If members or non-members have any topics they would like to see addressed in future workshops, please contact the Workshop Committee or the Executive Committee.

As usual, NMAC will award up to $3,000 in grants this year to successful applicants. The 2024 Research Grant cycle is now open, and submissions are due before or on April 15, 2024. Please refer to the website (https://nmarchcouncil.org/events/grants-program/) for more information and contact the Grants Committee Chair (pleckman@sricrm.com) with questions or submittals.

Thank you all for your continued participation and support of NMAC! I look forward to meeting you all at upcoming archaeology events and the annual meeting in the fall.

Sincerely,

Heather Seltzer-Rogers, 2024 NMAC President
