Wanted: WAPA members to staff table at SfAA
Are you planning on attending the SfAA? WAPA will have a table there, which we will be sharing with other LPOs. We need volunteers to take care of it from 10-4 on Thursday and Friday and from 10-1 on Saturday. If you would like to volunteer, please sign up on on WAPA's Google Drive site. You may sign up for one (or more!) hours at a time, and there is room for two people per slot. All WAPA members, whether you volunteer or not, are encouraged to stop by and say hello.

SfAA is coming!
Before you know it, the SfAA meetings in Pittsburgh
will be here, but hopefully not before we have a chance to write our papers. SfAA will take place from Tuesday, March 24 through Satiurday, March 28.
It is only a FOUR HOUR DRIVE from D.C. to Pittsburgh. Many of us will be making the trek. It will be much less expensive for all, and of course much more pleasant, if we travel to Pittsburgh in groups. Not everyone will be staying the entire time.
Those of us who want to stay in the conference hotel or a less expensive hotel nearby will need to make reservations very soon. UPDATE: As of 29 January 2015, the group block of rooms at the conference hotel is sold out. An overflow hotel a block away has been arranged at the same rate.
This is an ideal time to make sure that you have a ride or passengers to SfAA. So please sign up on the WAPA website ride share board to give or receive rides to SfAA.

WAPA Represented in SfAA Election
Two WAPA past-presidents are running for the SfAA board:
SfAA runs two slates. SfAA members can vote for one person from each slate. Laurie and Adam are running on different slates, so members would be able to vote for each of them. If both are elected, WAPA and the interests of practitioners would have a larger say on the SfAA Board.
