Subject: Student Committee Bi-Annual Report
Date: Sun, 17 Nov 2002
From: Anne Ballenger, Student Committee Chair
Dear Students,
Please forgive my delayed updating of our web site. I have had some particularly troublesome e-mail difficulties over the last three weeks. If anyone has e-mailed me, please send me another e-mail! All my e-mail was lost!
Here is an update on Student Committee Activities for you:

Bi-Annual Report - March 2002 thru November 2002
The Student Committee has been hard at work for you and has produced the Bi-Annual Report to the SfAA Executive Board. It will be presented at the Fall SfAA Board Meeting during the AAA meeting.
Please take a moment, review it and provide some comments to assist us! There is a brief synopsis and a full report.
2003 SfAA Conference LogoSfAA Student Committee's: Conference Connection
I hope everyone took advantage of the wonderful invitation by SfAA to present, organize and participate in the 2003 Conference in Portland, Oregon this year. Student response to the Conference Connection has been overwhelmingly positive. Thanks!

In fact, its still useful for those who are preparing their presentatons and planning to attend. Information on travel accommodations, Awards, presentation how-to's, making the best of the conference, and referrals are provided. Check it out!
SfAA Past President & Student Luncheon
One of the best ways to get to know prominent applied anthropologists in an informal setting is the SfAA Past Presidents & Students Luncheon. It's not stuffy; it's a sit down lunch where we sit a Past President to the right and left of you. All of the Past Presidents are very friendly and make time out of their schedules just to talk to YOU!.
Oh, by the way, did I mention that 25 students have lunch on us?
If you are not sure what you're getting yourself into, check out the photos of previous luncheons. Contact me to reserve your space.
