RE: [AntConn] RE: Agenda, AntConn Meeting, Wed Sep 9, 2009
Thanks, Michele, for your message about having to miss the AntConn committee meeting on Wednesday. Thanks, especially for your willingness to help out in regard to the two issues – a plan to develop a community advisory board for the Department, or a plan for a USF Anthropology Alumni Society. Your help will be valuable, because we know that you know how to activate people in a community sense.
We’ll be putting out a complete report shortly, with more details than were in the Agenda. One thing that I know we would like to do is encourage alum participation – even just attendance – at the Friday, October 23, Graduate Applied Anthropology Colloquium. Can you make some time available on that day? If so, please call Graduate Director Nancy Romero-Daza, 974-2405.
Although this is addressed to Michele Ogilvie, the invitation is open to other AntConn and SCOPA members as well!

Dr. wolfe, I will not be able to make it to the meeting, but I am willing to volunteer to work with the advisory board or alumni society- which ever is most in need of a warm body :). Thank you so much and Peace.
