Make plans for Spring Meeting

Please plan to join members and guests of the SGA at our semi-annual meeting this spring, scheduled for Saturday, May 18th in Macon. Preliminary plans include a morning session of presentations at the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame, a break for a boxed lunch (or bring your own), tour of Ocmulgee National Monument by Dan Bigman, and more presentations at Ocmulgee in the afternoon. The theme for 2013 Archaeology Month, of which the SGA Spring Meeting is a part, is “Digging and Diving into the Past: Celebrating 20 Years of Georgia Archaeology Awareness.” There’ll be a modest registration fee and the meeting is open to the public. Stay tuned to this website for details.
