Beta Analytic Inc. is one of the exhibitors of the Society for American Archaeology (SAA) 77th Annual Meeting currently underway in Memphis, Tennessee. The company’s Deputy Director and Technical Manager Chris Patrick and Operations Manager for Latin America/Iberian Peninsula Martin Tesini are inviting participants of the five-day event to visit Booth 812 at the Memphis Cook Convention Center.
The SAA Annual Meeting is one of the major conferences in the archaeology and cultural resources management industries. This year’s activities are divided between two venues – the Marriott Memphis Downtown and Memphis Cook Convention Center. Aside from the symposia, exhibits, poster sessions, workshops, and excursions, the 2012 meeting also include the SAA annual awards and annual business meeting, Cultural Resources Management Career Expo, and the Ethics Bowl – a debate-style competition exploring the ethics of the archaeological practice. The 77th SAA meeting ends on April 22, 2012.
“We make it a point to join the SAA conference each year because it gives us the opportunity to meet existing and potential clients and talk about their research. Any inquiries about our services or the radiocarbon dating method are always welcome at our booth,” Mr. Patrick says.
“This is a great way to promote our lab’s improved AMS dating services. We’ve reduced our standard turnaround time to 14 business days. Aside from fast service and reliability, I’m sure our clients will also appreciate the new features of our online results archive accessible 24/7. They can now download quality assurance reports and see photos of their samples processed in our lab,” Mr. Tesini adds.
The next SAA Annual Meeting is slated to take place on April 3-7, 2013, in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The SAA leads the archaeological community by promoting research, stewardship of archaeological resources, public and professional education, and the dissemination of knowledge. Its mission is to expand understanding and appreciation of humanity’s past as achieved through systematic investigation of the archaeological record.
Beta Analytic supports the SAA by joining its annual meetings and advertising in The SAA Archaeological Record, a magazine published by the SAA five times a year.
