Editor's Corner

As most of you who attended know, New Orleans was the biggest SAA Annual Meeting ever, with more than 2,900 registrants. It was a meeting filled with excitement and activities of all kinds. The town wasn't so bad either--food, jazz, and good times. I've got to report one thing--I couldn't relocate the House of the Rising Sun despite repeated efforts. It did exist, though, because my story was, except for a few details, corroborated by an old friend who shall remain nameless.

This issue of the Bulletin is devoted to reporting some of the highlights of the meeting, particularly the Annual Business Meeting and the winners of SAA awards. Of particular note is the Treasurer's Report by Fred Limp, which details very nicely the recent growth of SAA and provides some hard data on what your membership fees support. Due to the length of these reports and the volume of other important society business, we've delayed running some of our columns. However, they will reappear next issue.

This issue is the first in which our new Associate Editor for the Southern Cone, Jose Luis Lanata, begins to report on the archaeology of that region. While we've been making efforts to expand our coverage of Latin American activities since I became editor, I hope that we will broaden and deepen our reporting of this and other parts of the Americas.
