A FINAL WORD ON HOW TO LIST COMMUNITY COLLEGE ANTHROPOLOGY FOR FREE USING THE AAA WEB SITE TO START THE PROCESS. Kathleen Terry-Sharpe, our longtime SACC supporter in AAA staff, has given us the final clue:
1. Go to the AAA website
2. Find and click onto the Directory prompt on the opening page of the site.
3. Email jpounds@...
to get your unique college user name and password IF IT IS THE FIRST TIME THAT YOU ARE ENTERING YOUR COLLEGE ANTHRO DEPT. ON THE DIRECTORY; IF IT IS NOT THE FIRST TIME, USE YOUR ID AND PASSWORD FOR PREVIOUS ENTRY.
4. Follow the directions, ignoring the parts of the directory obviously geared to university degree granting departments. ON PAGE NINE, CHECK THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE BOX TO GET THE FEE WAIVED AND IT WILL ENTER AS '0' OWED, BUT YOU DO HAVE TO FILL OUT THE REQUIRED FORM FOR AN INVOICE. AGAIN, ANY PROBLEMS, EMAIL JPOUNDS@...

Jona forwarded your email to me and I would like you to forward my response to the listserv. The Guide website requires a unique user name and password for your institution. This is different from your INDIVIDUAL user name and password. This is necessary, as several individuals may be associated with each institution.
I encourage ANYONE who is having difficulty with the site to contact Jona Pounds at jpounds@...
. We have been using the site for almost eight years now. We have seldom had complaints about its difficulty. Once the institutional information is IN the database, it can be easily updated on an annual basis. Listers also receive their username and password information, along with their annual invitation to update their information.
We have tried to make this as easy as possible. That being said, there are ALWAYS things that can be done to improve the system. Rather than "give up" I hope that your colleagues will contact us and use us as a resource. As you know, I have tried dilligently over the past several years to assist community colleges. SO, if there are impediments to your participation in the Guide, please let me know so that Jona and I can help!
FYI-I will be out for the rest of the week on vacation, but Jona will be available to help you!
Please let me know if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions.

Thanks for your help; I will try my best to follow through as directed. You should know that a number of comm. college people on our listserve have told me that they have tried and given up attempting to list on the directory because it is so hard to get through...one does not use the AAA identification and password often so that there needs to be some way to more easily access the site and some directions for cc's easy to follow if possible. I will copy the listserve so that they can ask specific questions of y ou
