WAPA is establishing a permanent emergency Fund in order to provide temporary assistance to members in need. The seed money has been provided by a bequest from the estate of a long-time member, Connie Ojile. In her memory, WAPA intends to use this money, along with money donated by our members in the future, for the use of any qualifying WAPA member who needs a relatively small loan to tide himself or herself over during a financial crisis or shortfall.

Appeal from Adam Koons, former WAPA President
This year I am running for the SfAA Board position on the Nominations and Elections Committee. As a full time practitioner for over 30 years I offer an important, broad-based perspective to the committee and to SfAA. Having held multiple positions, including president, of the Washington Association for Professional Anthropologists (WAPA), I am well versed in board and committee responsibilities and participation. Pertaining to the N&E Committee, as a long-time “hiring manager” I have significant experience sourcing, vetting, and assessing candidates, for a variety of roles. For more information about my qualifications, please review my bio.
Please participate actively in the SfAA elections. And please vote for me.
