Check your SPAM folders!

Dear MAS members,

We value your membership and continued contribution to the Montana Archaeological Society. The last couple of years have been a challenge for us all. During this time the MAS Board has been sending communications to everyone on our mailing list (regardless of current membership) via MailChimp mass messaging.

We have heard from many of you that these emails were not received; resulting in missing invitations to participate in the meeting in Helena April 30, pay annual dues and general MAS happenings. It is likely that these messages were sent to your ‘Junk’ email box.

We regret this occurrence and this was certainly not intentional.

Renew your MAS Membership!

Did you remember your membership dues for 2021 or need to renew for 2022? Members like you are what make the Montana Archaeological Society a fantastic organization.

For those of you behind in your MAS dues, please consider this your last notice regarding dues payment for 2022 and any previous years. We have kindly sent issues of Archaeology in Montana for the past 2 years since we were unable to meet in person and even though you may not have paid dues those years. You will not receive your 2022 journals, the first of which is nearing completion, unless you pay any dues in arears including 2022. We are hopeful that our website will be active again soon and allow on-line payments, but in the meantime please use the mailing address in the on-line form. If you have questions about how many years you need to pay for to catch up, please contact either Phyllis Green archaeologyinmontana@gmail.com or Sydney Bacon sydout@gmail.com.

Stuart Connor Passing

MAS is sad to announce the passing of Stuart Conner in Billings recently. For those of you who didn’t know Stu, he was one of the founders of MAS and a long-time supporter. He was known nationally for his recording of petroglyphs and pictographs and was acknowledged by the Society for American Archaeology for this work through the award of the Donald Crabtree Award for Avocational Archaeologists in 1992.
