The Public Lands Policy Coordinating Office (PLPCO) is seeking nominations for the 2023 Professionalism in Cultural Resources Consulting Award. This annual award is for the consultant "whose deportment in the practice of cultural resources consulting during the past four (4) years represents the highest standards of professional morality, responsibility, and competence in completing projects that meet or exceed agency specifications, make contributions to the discipline of anthropological archaeology, and disseminate results to professional and public audiences."
Previous recipients include Heidi Roberts (HRA, Inc. Conservation Archaeology, 2020), Jason Chuipka (Woods Canyon Archaeological Consultants, 2021), and Rich Talbot (BYU Office of Public Archaeology, 2022).
Please take a few minutes to nominate a friend or colleague in the consulting business who deserves this recognition (PDF attached). Nominations will be accepted through Tuesday, January 17 and will be judged by other PLPCO-permitted consultants. The award will be given at the 2023 Consultants Meeting on Thursday, March 9. Please send completed nominations to Kris Carambelas (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Happy New Year!
