This is the 11th annual Cultural Resource Protection Summit. Since its 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 benefits of a landscape approach and how it might inform workable solutions for today’s most pressing challenges to effective cultural resource protection. Topics on Day 1 will orient us to a variety of relevant landscapes, including regulatory and environmental, while Day 2 topics will address more advanced Cultural Resource Management (CRM) applications. Keynotes, panel discussions, and open discussions will highlight useful examples of the link between landscape-based CRM and responsible land use.
ACRA's Executive Director, Marion Werkheiser, will be speaking on the federal legislative and regulatory landscape.
Please join us at the Suquamish Tribe’s beautiful and inviting House of Awakened Culture for a two-day gathering that will help you improve your technical skills while deepening your connection to why we do this work. Leave with more tools for protecting cultural resources and sharing the important stories they tell, not to mention new allies and friends.
