ASAP monthly update: April 2018

Notable recently

With final submissions to the AAA this week, our program for the meeting in San Jose is shaping up. In particular, there will again be two mentoring sessions: one is the matching of senior members with graduate students and new professionals for informal general discussion; the other will be a joint effort with CAE (Council on Anthropology and Education) on specifically education-related policy issues. We again received a small grant from the AAA to help on these.

Note that election material is now online on the AAA web site. ASAP is continuing its pattern of having co-presidents, one U.S. based and one from elsewhere. When you vote for co-president, vote for two candidates. The officer-at-large position is a regular “choose one candidate” election.

Also we seem to be coming up in the world. We received our first real scam attempt to have us divert money. The phishing community must have run out of low-hanging fruit or otherwise fallen on hard times. We chose not to come to their aid.

Coming up

Remember the call for submissions for our annual graduate student paper prize. The deadline is June 15, 2018, and the details are on the ASAP web site at
