As you've seen in your ballot packet, SAAweb will be lit up and populated with plenty of useful information during March. Point your web browser to http://www.saa.org, and check it out. You can also view the text of the pages with a text browser such as lynx. While electronic media will never fully replace the printed page in the near term, these alternative media will continue to grow in importance, and each of us will find that regardless of whether or not we approve or disapprove of this trend, it is a major factor that is reshaping how we do archaeology no matter what the setting. SAAweb will likewise grow in importance to SAA, and we encourage your feedback and insights into how it serves your particular needs.
Another bit of news in your ballot packet is the resignation of Ralph Johnson as executive director. SAA owes much to Ralph's leadership and energy over these past three years, and he will be much missed by all of us who have had a chance to work with him. A search for his replacement is now under way.
