ROPA matters take on added importance since you will be asked to vote on the proposal this coming fall. To help you make your decision, we're publishing a series of interviews, views, and the proposal itself. Ethics are serious business, so take your responsibilities seriously.
For those who were unable to attend the meeting, we've reproduced as best we can the pomp and circumstance of the business meeting with special attention to the awardees and their accomplishments. Maybe next year we'll try to give you the business meeting in QuickTime video and Real Audio in one of our electronic versions!

Finally, I'm pleased to report that I will be continuing as editor of SAA Bulletin through May 2001. I have still more plans for improving the Bulletin, and frankly, the notion of being on board at the true change of the millenium is very exciting.

For the moment, I'll settle for having successfully convinced Emily McClung de Tapia of INAH to become our associate editor for Mexico and Central America. Welcome, Emily!
