09/01/2020 1:49 PM | ACRAsphere Blog Team

An event of interest to CRM firms is the upcoming Suquamish Tribe's Cultural Resource Protection Summit. The 13th Annual Summit will be held virtually on October 20 and 21, 2020. The theme of this year's summit is Telling the Stories of Who We Are.

From the event organizers:

The 2020 Cultural Resource Protection Summit marks our 13th gathering, and as your well-being is always our greatest concern, we are going Virtual!! Our Summit family is still hard at work fulfilling the mission we have had since the Summit’s inception: The primary goal in organizing the annual Summit has been to facilitate amongst all affected parties an open, frank discussion about the intersection between cultural resources and land use. The Summit is designed to promote collaborative cultural resource planning as an effective means of finding resolution to issues before they escalate into emotionally-charged, divisive, and expensive stalemates or law suits.

This year, the Summit agenda includes an engaging array of cutting-edge topics that will encourage attendees to examine the ways we tell (or should be telling) the stories of the cultural resources we are responsible for protecting and how engaging storytelling might shape innovative solutions for today’s most pressing challenges to effective cultural resource protection. A tripartite Keynote, panel discussions, lightning talks, and small group discussions will highlight useful examples of the links between engaging CRM stories and responsible land use. We will also reserve time for Q&A and general socializing. It will be a much-needed boost to see one another, even if it must be virtually for now!

Please join us online for a two humanely-paced days that will help you improve your technical skills while deepening your connection to why we do this work. Then, with renewed commitment, move forward with helpful tools for protecting cultural resources and sharing the important stories they tell.
