Spring 2012 Meeting Follow-up: Discussion on Metal Detecting Standards

Thanks to all who attended and participated in the Spring 2012 GCPA meeting at Georgia Gwinnett College.  Thanks also to our guests, AMDA’s Chris Espenshade, Patrick Severts, and Sheldon Skaggs, for their presentation on a proposal of Standards for Metal Detecting in Georgia.
I thought the discussion was engaging and productive, and I look forward to continuing it in the near future.  As a follow-up to this meeting, find a copy here of the presentation meant to accompany the talking points which were distributed during the meeting.  To continue the discussion, please feel free to comment here on the website.  Also, please see announcement regarding AMDA’s next event.
