I’ve replied to all
to do a little marketing as well as cast my vote. CALPO folks will be busy
presenting on Friday morning during the 10:15 – 12:00 slot in a session
organized by Jim Mullooly -- please attend!! Seven of us will participate in
a session titled:
California's Local Practitioner
Organizations: Critical Intersections in Applied Anthropology.
That said, I would
prefer a post-presentation (noon-2) LPO gathering.

Subject: LPO stuff for AAA
It's that time again for
me to shake off the dust and get active again. Although I complain about the
summer heat, it sure seems to fly by.
In any case I need a quick
vote from everyone, as in the next few days, as to whether you would rather
hold a 8 to 10 am breakfast type thing, or a noon to 2 p.m. meeting at the
AAA meeting in November in San
Jose . The date would be Friday, Nov. 17. This will be
more than a meet&greet, I hope, and I will work to find us a space where
we call all talk and be heard.
I would like to really hear about
issues, concerns and problems that LPOs have, and whether we can brainstorm
possible solutions, including those that would include
NAPA support. For
example, I am a member of WAPA and we always have a problem with tracking
and maintaining membership lists. Maybe it's time to talk to
NAPA again about
piggybacking on their website to use their online system...
we should also share success stories; those things you have been doing that
gets an enthusiastic response from members, etc.
As we mostly know
each other now, we will pass on the usual "state of the LPO" updates. We
will introduce two new LPOs from Boston and
New York ,
and it is hoped someone from those two groups will attend, as well as
Francisco , a rep from which has not yet been to one
of our gatherings.
NAPA will have a table at the meeting as as
usual you are encouraged to develop an organization flyer to hand out. This
should be especially useful and important to the CALPO folks; meetings in
your back yard should help recruit some new members.
So, let me know
about whether you want to meet Friday am or pm. Neither time is great but
they are mutually problematic for everyone. Those who submit opinions by
next week will hold sway with the final schedule.
Please mention to
your membership that we will need to fill time slots at the booth for the
three days (one LPO member and one
NAPA member at all times, Thurday to
Saturday, 9 to 4).
Hope all is well otherwise. Please return to your
normally scheduled summer
