Message from the ASA Executive Director

Dear ASA Community,

The Secretariat is pleased to announce that the Preliminary Program for the 2006 Annual Meeting, “(Re) Thinking Africa and the World: Internal Reflections, External Responses,” November 16-19, 2006, in the Westin St. Francis Hotel, San Francisco, CA, is now available on the ASA website.

Please note that the Program includes an additional morning session on Thursday, November 16, 2006. The Executive Committee of the ASA Board of Directors voted to add this additional session in order to accommodate all the proposals that were accepted by the Program Committee. The continuing labor/hotel management dispute in San Francisco made it impossible for the ASA to seek additional space in any adjacent hotel (The Westin St. Francis has expressed support for labor’s request and is thus exempt from the labor boycott).

Please be aware that the Preliminary Program will not be revised online. All corrections will appear in the Final Program that will be distributed onsite in San Francisco.

We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!

Best wishes,
Carol L. Martin, PhD
Executive Director
