Message #208: From: AzTeC SW Archaeology SIG To: "'Matthias Giessler'" Subject: Newsletter of the Trans-Pecos Archaeological Society (TPAS) Date: Fri, 21 Jun 96 08:13:00 MST Encoding: 18 TEXT From: Deni J.Seymour After the June 25th open meeting for T-PAS in which industry is invited (Nuthin fancy in Roswell at 11:00am), the next business meeting of T-PAS will be held on July 17th in Roswell at Marios Restaurant at 11:00. Topics of discussion will include preparation of explicit field and report standards that exceed the BLM guidelines. BLM standards have recently been revised but they are minimal guidelines and there is a need for additional guidance in this area. The goal is to raise the quality of work and have the BLM help enforce these professional standards. These will be formally presented by the group at the July 31 permittee meeting that is being hosted by the BLM. The NM state initiatives will also be discussed at this July 17th meeting (re: L.Sebastian's announcement). Representatives for this workshop will be selected.
