    Beat the heat by clearing out your jewelry box, library, attic, garage, or storage unit! While this activity is guaranteed to result in a sense of personal satisfaction, you will likely find some treasures that would be perfect for the TAS Silent Auction. We especially welcome jewelry (vintage items are great!), arts and crafts, books, gift baskets, field kits, bed and breakfast getaways, and anything else that you think a fellow TAS member would enjoy. We know that many of you are artistic in a variety of media so show off your talents by donating a creation or two to the auction.

    You are welcome to bring your donations with you to the TAS Annual Meeting. Contact Pat Mercado-Allinger, Silent Auction Chairman at if you have any questions or cannot attend the meeting and need to coordinate delivery.

    Remember that the proceeds of each auction support the important activities of TAS. Be sure to make regular visits to the Silent Auction room to ensure that you aren’t outbid by your TAS friends!

    Educators are invited to attend a one-day workshop about introducing archeology into your lessons.

    Background information will be presented, and hands-on lessons demonstrated. Multiple resources will be distributed with relevant TEKS defined. TAS is a provider of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) through the SBEC, but district level approval would guarantee credit for career portfolios.

    More information can be found on the TAS website here: Educator Workshop

    Congratulations to TAS's Region 4 director, Victor Galan (PhD Texas A&M)! Victor was recently appointed to the National Park System Advisory Board along with 14 other new members by Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland. Secretary Haaland made the announcement Wednesday, May 24, 2023 stating “These new National Park System Advisory Board members represent experienced practitioners in cultural and natural resources management, as well as experts in relevant academic fields including environmental law, geography, and history. I look forward to their insight as we work to make our public lands accessible and inviting to all.”

    In addition to its advisory role, the Board also has a regulatory role in recommending new National Natural Landmarks and National Historic Landmarks and provides recommendations regarding the national historic significance of proposed National Historic Trails. In recognition of the importance of hearing from Tribal voices and perspectives when making management decisions that impact public lands and waters, Secretary Haaland added a requirement that at least one member of the Board be from a federally recognized Tribe.

    Please join me in celebrating Victor and this well-deserved acknowledgement of his expertise and the significance of his work collaborating with Tribal communities!

    Introducing your president-elect hopefuls! The Nominating Committee will be forwarding two fine candidates for the position of President-Elect: Aaron Norment and Jimmy Barrera. After serving as President-Elect, the successful candidate will become TAS President in 2025. In keeping with long-standing TAS tradition, we are alternating every year between avocational and professional presidential nominees. Avocational archeologist Diedre Hood will be President in 2024, so the 2025 candidates are both professional archeologists.

    We asked Jimmy and Aaron to submit a short blurb and photo, by way of introduction. You can read what the candidates provided on the TAS website here: Pending final approval by the Board in August, when the nominations are made official, these candidates will appear on the ballot for President-Elect this October. Voters will also have the opportunity to name their own write-in candidates. 

    Remember to vote online during the Annual Meeting. You do not have to attend the meeting to vote, but you do have to be a current member.
