    This training is open to all CTA members and will be held on October 11th at the TAS Annual Meeting in Amarillo, following the morning CTA business meeting. 

    We are pleased to announce that this year's CTA professional development training will cover the topic of occupational health and safety which will be lead by Dr. Kurt Eifling, MD, FAWM and Jacobo Paz:

    Dr. Eifling is the Emergency Medical Director for the Institute for Field Research and former General Medical Officer for the US Marine Corps.  He will be leading a seminar on the topic of building a culture of safety and productivity in our organizations.  Core topics discussed will include how to plan and integrate safety primarily around field operations including how to minimize injuries caused by encounters with wildlife and those related to heat injuries.  As this will be an interactive session, Dr. Eifling asks us to bring our individual stories with respect to the highs and lows of leading crews in the field, as well as our tips and tricks for keeping a tent cool in the heat of summer.

    Jacobo Paz is a licensed industrial health and safety trainer and will follow-up Dr. Eifling’s seminar with a presentation on excavation and construction site safety. He will specifically cover, construction site hazards to include trench safety, proper wearing of personal protective equipment, and how to protect yourself and your crews from excavation-related accidents.

    We believe this training will prove to be valuable, as well as entertaining, and will expand our awareness of how to instill a culture of safety within our workplaces. Hope you can join us!

    Hi Everyone-

    I will be compiling the fall newsletter in September, so now is the time to start thinking about articles you might would like to share with the other CTA members. As usual, feel free to also submit photos from CTA events/meetings, archaeology conferences, interesting field projects, field schools, etc. with a short blurb below with the who, what, where, and when for the CTA photo page.

    CTA officers and committee chairs – don’t forget to send me your reports and any items that need to be reviewed and voted on during the fall meeting. Catherine will also post all items that are up for vote on the CTA members only page.

    The deadline for newsletter submissions will be FRIDAY, September 20th, 2019 at 5pm. Please submit all your entries to me by that date. I will no longer be accepting late submissions, so please plan accordingly. As a friendly reminder, you need to be a current member to submit, so don’t forget to pay your membership dues!

    Thanks!
