2020 Annual Meeting

Unfortunately, in consideration of current and future COVID-19 related events, the MAS has made the difficult decision to reschedule the 2020 Annual Meeting.

The new dates will be August 28-30, 2020. The venue will still be the Radisson in Branson and all activities as planned will occur. If for some reason the event in August is cancelled, then full refunds will be given at that time. 

VERY IMPORTANT: Individual attendees must contact the conference hotel to move room reservations to those dates or cancel their rooms. The hotel will NOT automatically move these reservations to the rescheduled date. The phone number for the Branson Radisson is: (417) 335-5767

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, it is not a decision that was made lightly.

The 2020 Meeting of the MAS will be at the Radisson Hotel in Branson. The Radisson is in the heart of Branson and amenities include heated indoor pools; on-site parking, bar, and restaurant; a workout facility; and wi-fi. Sleeping rooms will be $80/night plus tax; the rate includes a free hot breakfast. Book by calling 417-335-5767 and mention that you are with the Missouri Archaeological Society. The hotel has concurrent events, so availability beyond that room block may be limited. There will be a Friday-evening welcome reception hosted by the Ozarks Chapter with food and drinks at the conference hotel.
Saturday will feature speaking and poster presentations, a silent auction (please contact the MAS office if you have items to donate), book sales, Native American hand game, and exhibits. Attendees are urged to take advantage of the free table space in the exhibit area and bring artifacts or other items to display.
Saturday evening will feature a banquet and the Koch Lecture.
Our Koch Lecturer will be self-taught, experimental archaeologist and lithic expert Larry Kinsella who will present Discovery through Experimentation.

Be sure to save the date and join us for this always-fun event.
