2020 Annual Meeting
The 2020 Meeting of the MAS will be at the Radisson Hotel in Branson on April 17–19. 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. Book by March 17 to receive the reduced rate. 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.
Registration materials will be mailed to all members in early 2020 and will also be available here soon. Be sure to save the date and join us for this always-fun event.
