Karl Kumli Named Chair of Colorado State Historical Fund Advisory Committee

Karl Kumli has been asked to chair the Colorado State Historical Fund Advisory Committee (SHFAC).  That Committee conducts an in-depth review of grant applications which are made to History Colorado (the Colorado State Historical Society) for investigation and preservation of history and archaeology in Colorado.  Last year the SHFAC reviewed scores of grant applications and forwarded to the History Colorado board recommendations for funding $7.9 million in grants for archaeology and historic preservation in Colorado.   Karl has served on the SHFAC for the past two years.  This work compliments Karl’s past service on the Board of Trustees for Crow Canyon Archaeological Center and his current work on the boards of Colorado Preservation, Inc. and Hilos Culturales, an Indo-Hispanic Cultural Preservation nonprofit.
