President's Message, January 2016

A hearty welcome from the Council on Nursing and Anthropology CONAA to all of our new and returning members and a happy new year 2016 to all! We are excited to tell you about our upcoming events. In March 2016 CONAA will serve as a co-sponsor at the Society for Applied Anthropology SfAA meetings in Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA. We will have a formidable presence at these SfAA meetings with 35 papers to be delivered in 6 CONAA Sessions! This includes one CONAA session organized with COPAA, the Council on Practicing and Applied Anthropologists. All of the CONAA sessions are clustered over two days at SfAA 2016 - Thursday March 31 & Friday April 1st (no fooling)

Our spotlight event is the CONAA Business Meeting and Brunch to be held on Friday April 1st at 10am in the International Suite. We have news to share about our new online CONAA membership payment system and our new IRS non-profit status. Save the date and mark your calendars for:
