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
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,

Subject: Update on LPO activities
Dear LPO Folks:
I have been waiting for the dust to settle from the AAA decision to move
2004 meeting to San Francisco to Atlanta before writing you about how
move will affect activities for LPOs. In a previous message I noted
for a NAPA LPO roundtable, networking party, and Consortium booth. Lots
discussions have been taking place about how to deal with the move, but
was decided that none of these activities could be meaningfully or
transferred to Atlanta.
This is of course a disappointment and I will follow up this message
some of you individually to discuss ongoing activities and needs.
On the bright side, I have been in touch with my wonderful counterparts
SfAA and they are open to a cosponsored activity for the April SfAA
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
together and have some fun, too.
There is also discussion of a Consortium booth for the SfAA meeting,
would hopefully include an opportunity for LPOs to disseminate
Those talks are ongoing and we probably won't know anything until the
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
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
and productively for you. AAA does not have a sense yet of how many
are going, but will try to judge it by how many pre-registrants request
refunds in the coming weeks.
Best wishes for now,
NAPA LPO Liaison
