      Please help with this request from the Anth. Educa. Committee of the
      AAA; I want to clarify our educational outreach activities at SACC, not
      just list my own program.

      Thank you Melissa:

      Just to update: We've heard from everyone except Paul
      and Mark as to whether changing the AEC meeting from 8-11 to 10-1 is
      acceptable...Paul and Mark, is the time change OK with you? If so, we
      will need to schedule a place to meet.

      p.s. Melissa, is the room we were scheduled in available
      from 10-1? thanks,
      Norma
