      A package providing details about the 2003 SACC meetings in
      Vancouver has been snail-mailed to all SACC members. The
      envelopes entered the snail mail system on Friday, December 6th.

      The package includes meeting highlights, a preliminary schedule,
      hotel information, and a registration form.

      The conference themes are Teaching Anthropology, Northwest
      Coast Indigenous Cultures, and Contemporary West Coast
      Canadian Culture.

      Distinguished guest speakers include Jim Hart and James
      Delgado. Jim Hart is a Master Haida carver, hereditary chief and
      keen commentator on cultural issues. James Delgado is a
      distinguished underwater archaeologist and author of close to 30
      books and numerous articles.

      Field trips include walking tours of Vancouver's Chinatown,
      Shopping District, and Historic Gastown; UBC Museum of
      Anthropology; Granville Island (a blend of public market, shops,
      studios, galleries, entertainment, marinas, and pubs where one
      should be able to experience authentic west Coast Canadian
      culture), Xa:ytem (a prehistoric archaeological site and First
      Nations cultural education center), and Fort Langley (a
      reconstructed fur trade fort)

      An evening reception will include live world music as well as music
      and book exhibits.

      The mailing includes a call for paper presentations, session chairs,
      and luncheon roundtable discussion topics, and people to lead or
      facilitate the discussions. Abstracts of proposed presentations,
      offers to be a session chair, and suggestions for luncheon
      discussions are due February 14th.

      The meeting venue is the Pacific Palisades Hotel. The hotel is
      holding 50 rooms at the rate of $99 Canadian (about 64 USD), but
      these must be booked by March 3rd.

      Meeting fees include all the academic presentations, breakfast on
      the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, mid-morning refreshments
      during the academic sessions on Thursday and Friday, lunch at
      the hotel on Thursday and Friday, and at Xa:ytem on Saturday; the
      evening reception; and all field trips. The meeting fee for all three
      days in $195 (USD), if registered before March 3rd. Single day
      registration is $65 (USD), if registered before March 3rd. On-site
      registration is $75/day (USD).

      I know that most of you are aware that the site of the 2003
      meetings is in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. There is
      another Vancouver in Washington State, which is a nice-enough
      place, but it is not where the SACC meetings are going to be held.
      You want Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The airport code is
      YVR.

      The meeting registration form, hotel information, and call for papers
      are also available on the SACC web site - www.anthro.cc.

      Please contact me if you would like any further information about
      the meetings or Vancouver.
