ShovelBums @20 & A Free CRM Expo at the SAA’s in Albuquerque Saturday 12-4 (Read/share/encourage your friends to go!)

R. Joe Brandon
 

Folks,

For those of you who live within 4hrs of Albuquerque I would like to encourage you to come to the SAA’s for the Free CRM Expo being held at the convention center tomorrow on Saturday 10-4. The expo will have 50 companies represented(*), but more importantly will serve as a gathering place for coming across old friends (and therefore likely preceed an evening of anthropologically observed debauchery). Think of it as an excuse to come to the big city for the weekend for the occasional big shopping trip :-) Knowing SW connections I am sure you can find a couch to crash on in ABQ (Loebig & Silcock are threatening to crash me which will likely create a biohazard environment! Lol). And it’s a good excuse to grab an Olympia Gyro!

Yeah yeah I know it is expensive to go to the SAA’s out of pocket. Yeah yeah, it’s a haul. That’s my life too. But the CRM Expo is a great way to overlap with the attendees and catch up with your far flung peers. It also gives you a new appreciation for The Pecos Conference or the Plains Conference  ;-).  But seriously, it just an overnighter. Get in touch with your youth and just do it. You might be surprised and the outcome of reacquainting with some of your old peers who were able to scale the narrowing ladder into the ivory tower of academia. Maybe you will be able to use your decades of knowledge and get back into doing some research in other areas you once explored.

So if you live in the highest concentration of archaeologists per-capita in the country (I’m looking at you Cortez folk - Ewa, Paul, Deb, Rick, good god the list is long! etc...) or south to El Paso/Las Cruces (Church? Kludt? Are you out there?) get in touch with your old self that propelled you into the abyss of an archaeology career and do an impromptu road trip. You won’t regret it if you do, but you will if you don’t, and we are getting to old to live with regrets.

ShovelBums 20th anniversary.

(*) I was hoping to have a table set up at the CRM Expo to celebrate ShovelBums hitting its 20th Anniversary this month and hopefully able to meet some of you personally (I was planning on trying to sneak in a keg, but that might not have been very subtle?). Unfortunately without an expense account, three kids plus a foreign exchange student or two, and a wife with a busy work/travel schedule, by time I could confirm I could go the Expo was "Full". So I’ll be wandering around the Expo in a gray/herringbone jacket and a blue shirt (or a Indiana Jones movie VfX crew shirt with the alien Crystal Skull logo a friend who worked for ILM got me: terrible movie, fun shirt), not sure if I’ll have my ShovelBums hat on. So if we cross paths, and ShovelBums has ever helped you out, feel free to introduce yourself and let me know. ShovelBums operates as kind of a (non-photographed) black hole in that when I click "Approve" the messages go out and the rest is in your hands! I don’t know what happens next. All I know is employers keep coming back, they pay their invoices with few issues, and ~50,000 positions from the "ShovelBum" to Project Director have been filled. These jobs would have existed whether ShovelBums did or not. ShovelBums is simply a timely, efficient, modestly well curated tool for your use. It is nothing more than that. But I do know it has proven useful to some of you, which is cool. I am in the middle of a seasonal bronchitis episode and doped up on prednisone, so if we are talking and I seem out of breath, that’s what’s going on. What a PIA! Lol

I hope to see you there!

From the SAA guide:

‘"CULTURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT CAREER (CRM) EXPO

Sponsored by the American Cultural Resources Association (ACRA) and SAA, the CRM Expo will be held on Saturday, April 13 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm in Hall 4 (ACC).

Subtle humor in the Albuquerque Journal about the conference.





Have you ever drove into the mountains after a bad day of scenic photography conditions, stopped to take a leak, and look up and realize you are at the foot of Sandia Cave? So what do you do if it’s almost sunset? You load up your gear and go for a hike!

Washington State Department of Natural Resources has a State Lands Archaeologist job opportunity

Flynn, Jody (DNR)
 

State Lands Archaeologist - Olympia
 

Want to join something GREAT and make a difference?
Can you interpret the past to help guide future land management decisions?  Does finding solutions to challenging projects inspire you?  Will you be part of driving a positive organizational culture in a large and diverse state agency?  If yes, apply to join our multidisciplinary stewardship team as the newest State Lands Archaeologist!


The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) seeks to ensure that state trust lands are managed in collaboration with tribal nations, and with respect for tribal sovereignty and reserved rights.  To fulfill the responsibilities as the State Lands Archeologist, you will work closely with tribes, DNR regions, divisions and programs, and the executive staff to accomplish this collaborative goal.


In this position, you will provide professional cultural resources analysis and consultative services to resource managers and field staff throughout Washington State.  You will conduct cultural resource desk and field reconnaissance; develop resource management and monitoring plans; train staff at all levels; and oversee survey, sample collection, field evaluation and reporting work.  You will coordinate with tribal representatives and state and federal agencies.  You will produce and deliver teaching modules and collaborate on agency-level guidance and planning documents.  You will assist with contract preparation and administration for cultural resource consultation services conducted by external entities.


You'll bring your substantial field experience and excellent project management skills to bear as one of two archaeologists responsible for cultural resource management on 5.6 million acres of state-managed uplands and aquatic lands.  Ingenuity and agility are ideal skills as you manage shifting priorities with multiple competing deadlines to meeting agency commitments.  You will effectively and positively communicate and network with internal staff from all regions, divisions, and executive management, as well as state, federal, and tribal agencies.


One of the best things about this job is the people you work with.  The scientists of the DNR Forest Resources Division come from a variety of disciplines: ecology, forestry, wildlife biology, geography and spatial data management, geology, and more.  We are dedicated to practicing sustainable land stewardship that provides conservation, recreation, and revenue opportunities throughout the state.


Given the diversity of Washington's landscapes and the breadth of the management solutions you will be responsible for coordinating, we are looking for an archaeological professional who is an adaptable generalist with considerable pedestrian survey experience.  We are particularly interested in meeting applicants with a background in coastal, nearshore, or aquatic archaeology.  A successful applicant has at least five years of field and project management experience and must meet the state of Washington's standards for qualified professional archaeologists (WAC 25-48-020 (4)) and one or both parts of the Secretary of the Interior's professional qualification standards for archaeology (36 CFR Part 61).  Preference will be given to applicants who meet the prehistoric archaeology standard or additional professional qualification standards in the related disciplines.


In your application materials, please demonstrate your understanding of and experience with GIS, cartography, technical writing, teaching, project management, and program development.
This is a full-time, permanent, overtime-exempt position.  It will require approximately 10-15 days away from the duty station per month, in addition to some overnight travel for fieldwork, meetings, conferences and other events throughout the region. 

 

Required Qualifications: 
The right candidate has:

·         Master's degree in archaeology, anthropology, cultural resources management or closely related field.

·         Five years of professional experience in archaeological, historical, or cultural resource research, administration or management with at least one year of unsupervised field and analytic experience.


Desirable Qualifications:

·         Demonstrated understanding and experience with management of non-archaeological cultural resources (e.g., traditional cultural properties, traditional materials and first foods, etc.).

·         Expertise in preparing and presenting student-centered learning modules in field and office settings.

·         Proficiency in GIS and GPS and ability to create visualizations and manage data in ArcGIS.
