Dear SACC Colleagues,
Attached are the minutes of the annual meeting business meeting that
took place in Washington, D.C., last March. If some information has been
unintentionally omitted please let me know.
The board hopes to see you at the forthcoming AAA annual meeting in San
Francisco this month. The SACC board meeting is scheduled from 2-4 p.m.
on Friday, Nov. 21 in Union Square 8; the business meeting will take
place from 6:15 to 7:30 p.m. in the Continental Parlor 7. The meeting
agendas are attached. The Five Fields Update, organized by past
president Rob Edwards, is scheduled for Sunday, the 23rd, from 10:15 -
12:00 p.m. in the Lombard. Please check your meeting program for
possible meeting room changes.
It would like to add that It has been my pleasure to serve as SACC
president this past year. Besides being a wonderful learning experience
and an occasion to become better acquainted with many of you, taking on
the role of president gave me the opportunity to arrange a
behind-the-scenes experience in the nation's museum to introduce you to
some exceptional Smithsonian researchers who were more than pleased to
share their work with you. The enthusiasm and warmth you expressed
toward the speakers was noted. And I understand from Doug Owsley that he
received emails, a t-shirt, and even publications from SACC members who
attended his presentation.
Now we have SACC's forthcoming annual meeting in Tucson, April 8-12,
organized by soon to be co-presidents Mary Gilliland and Maren Wilson,
to look forward. You can access the registration form online at
Lastly, I would like to thank the SACC members who made my life so much
easier as president. Many of you offered advice and encouragement as
past presidents and I want to thank you for that. For those of you who
helped me put the meeting together, advertise, and record the meetings,
I want to express my deep appreciation to Mel Johnson, Lloyd Miller,
Rebecca Stein-Frankel, Patricia Hamlen, Laura Gonzalez, and Deborah
Shepherd. As always it is a team effort and for those of you considering
taking on a board position, I encourage you to do so.
I look forward to seeing you in San Francisco. Ann
