      Terry, et al.,

      The AAA's committee on Anthropology and Education decided to have their
      meetings in San Francisco anyway during the original dates. I believe
      Medical Anthropology and other groups are considering this as well.

      Although I look forward to Santa Fe, I will be in San Francisco during
      the original AAA meetings dates and I'm wondering if anyone else will be
      there?

      I include the following attached e-mail message as means of inviting any
      others who want to head West anyway. We have rooms blocked out at the
      Best Western Canterbury Hotel for $109 a night. You can call then
      directly and say you are with the CAE conference.

      All the best,

      -Jim

      Subject: Update on LPO activities


      Dear LPO Folks:

      I have been waiting for the dust to settle from the AAA decision to move
      the
      2004 meeting to San Francisco to Atlanta before writing you about how
      the
      move will affect activities for LPOs. In a previous message I noted
      plans
      for a NAPA LPO roundtable, networking party, and Consortium booth. Lots
      of
      discussions have been taking place about how to deal with the move, but
      it
      was decided that none of these activities could be meaningfully or
      easily
      transferred to Atlanta.

      This is of course a disappointment and I will follow up this message
      with
      some of you individually to discuss ongoing activities and needs.

      On the bright side, I have been in touch with my wonderful counterparts
      from
      SfAA and they are open to a cosponsored activity for the April SfAA
      meeting
      in Santa Fe. We will be in touch in due course, once we know what's
      possible. In any case it should be a great opportunity for us all to
      work
      together and have some fun, too.

      There is also discussion of a Consortium booth for the SfAA meeting,
      which
      would hopefully include an opportunity for LPOs to disseminate
      information.
      Those talks are ongoing and we probably won't know anything until the
      new
      year.

      In a way, this AAA situation brings to mind the real need for LPOs.
      Sometimes things happen at the nation level that are out of our control.
      With a local group of colleagues, we can at least plan and guide our
      fates a
      little more easily, and support each other in times of need.

      For those of you who are going to Atlanta, I hope things will go
      smoothly
      and productively for you. AAA does not have a sense yet of how many
      people
      are going, but will try to judge it by how many pre-registrants request
      refunds in the coming weeks.

      Best wishes for now,
      Terry Redding
      NAPA LPO Liaison
