Texas Archeological Society Annual Meeting 2020

TAM Logo

 

The Houston, Brazosport and Fort Bend Archeological Societies look forward to welcoming you to Houston, Texas, for the 91st annual meeting of the Texas Archeological Society! The meeting will be held October 29 – November 1, 2020 at the gorgeous Omni Hotel and Resort on Houston’s Westside, at I-10 and Eldridge Road. Best news about this location – you will not have to tackle Houston traffic to get there! It’s on the far western outskirts of downtown and there are 600 free parking spaces! Possibly the best news is the price tag -- $119 per night! The OMNI has already set up a website for the TAS meeting and you can make hotel reservations for the event at https://www.omnihotels.com/hotels/houston-westside/meetings/tas-91st-annual-conference-10232020

Those of you who attended the 2015 meeting here in Houston will remember the great experience we had at the Omni. You’ll be one of the first to experience the recent $11 million renovation – including a larger BAR! The peaceful water garden in the atrium lobby is still there and welcomes you with cascading waterfalls, exotic foliage and tropical fish in a beautiful serene setting. There’s a spa, an outdoor pool, and many other amenities. This spectacular luxury hotel rests on lush greens and is surrounded by a picturesque two-acre lake. At the Omni Houston Hotel at Westside, unparalleled hospitality complements priceless accommodations to create the ultimate experience. Y’all come!

Our LAC team is already hard at work! HAS members Linda Gorski and Bob Sewell are heading up the Local Arrangements Committee. HAS and BAS member Sue Gross has volunteered to run the Silent Auction again (it was a HUGE success in 2015) and is prepared to take donations starting immediately. You can email her at suegbobs@comcast.net. We already have several silent auction items donated including exciting raffle packages. Sandy Rogers is once again going to be our Book/Exhibit/Vendor room coordinator so if you’d like to reserve a table for your organization contact Sandy at sojourne@att.net. Jay Roussel and his FBAS team will be timekeepers and room monitors during the event. Our program co-chairs, Dr. Jason W. Barrett and Dr. Gus Costa, are already working on a system for accepting papers, poster presentations and workshop proposals and that information will be published shortly. It’s going to be a great meeting!

Houston awaits and we hope you will make plans now to join us in 2020. We’re working with all the area museums and attractions to ensure special rates for meeting attendees. Plus we have a few other surprises up our sleeves! Please email me at lindagorski@cs.com or Bob at robert-sewell@att.net if you have any questions.
