Allied Academies News
Number 7 - Fall 2000

The Maui conference was a great success! We are pleased to report that this conference featured more than 225 authors representing 10 different nations, and more than half of the states within the United States. This was the ninth meeting of the Allied Academies. As you may know, the organization is a not for profit corporation and is not sponsored by any university or organization. We are dependent upon conference registration fees, membership fees, and contributions from interested and supportive groups. We would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to all who participated. It is the authors and the conference participants who make the Allied Academies successful and who support our efforts to achieve our mission.

The new Internet Division also proved to be a success, with more than twenty participants (many of whom won awards). We also had a few people submit Power Point presentations. We will be offering Internet Division participants the option of having video taped presentations or Power Point presentations broadcasted on our web site for the next conference as well.

on't forget to check our web site for announcements and other pertinent information. We have attempted to further streamline our submission procedures. Note, too, the upcoming International Conference in Nashville, in April 2001. We are still in the process of choosing a hotel site for the Fall 2001 conference, but we will probably be back in Las Vegas.
