Today we are introducing you to another of our shining stars on the Archaeology move, Chelsea Thommes. Chelsea started volunteering with us in August 2012 and we haven’t been able to get rid of her since. In fact, over the breaks when most students scatter for home and surfing beaches, Chelsea has been known to put in even more volunteer hours!

In Part 1 of ‘Organizing the Move’ we looked at the overall process and steps we were taking to ensure a safe and successful move experience. With this and future posts we will delve a little further into the various organizational and motivational tools we are using as well as exploring in detail the different stages of artifact processing leading up to the move. Today, in Part 2 we will look at one of the organizational tools that help to keep everyone up-to-date on the progress of the move.

It is my pleasure to introduce you to Paige Walker, another of our fantastic volunteers on the Archaeology move. Until last month, Paige was a U.C. Berkeley senior, majoring in Art History with a focus on Medieval books. She joined the Museum in June 2011 when she began volunteering for the Arizona Perishables Rehousing Project. This project involved inventory, rehousing, and photography of sandals, basketry fragments, cordage, and clothing that was recovered from various localities in Arizona.

Today we would like to introduce you to one of our amazing work-study students, Andres Tobar. Andres is a super-senior (his words), double-majoring in Anthropology and Rhetoric and minoring in sass and chivalry (again, his words).

Organizing the Move
As with most big projects, organization is one of the keys to success. This is especially true when your project is relying on many people, often from different departments, contributing necessary information and preparing objects for a move. The PAHMA move is no exception. The many steps that need to occur must be orchestrated in a specific order for our move to go smoothly, and keeping everyone up-to-date on that progress is integral.
