Note from the Executive Director.

Dear WHA Members,

As the year approaches its end, I'd like to thank you for your continued support and involvement in the WHA. It has been gratifying to see so many individuals come together in the support of this great organization and its mission.

We had a terrific conference in Salem with about 475 people in attendance! Our hosts at Salem State College were fantastic. The presenters, panelists, keynote speakers, and exhibitors made for a lively and interesting time. The town itself was a charming, perfect venue for the conference and its themes. We will build on Salem's successes in San Diego, where we will hold our 2010 conference--another great venue sure to be full of great speakers, presenters, panels, sights, and social activities. We have secured the San Diego Marriott Mission Valley which offers an ideal place for the conference, with more than ample meeting space, great low rates, and a convenient location on the trolley line. More information on the conference is available in this Bulletin and on our website. It is not too early to be thinking about the 2011 conference in Beijing or the symposium in Istanbul in October of 2010-also sure to be terrific events in fantastic cities.

This year we will institute "smart" online submissions for the San Diego conference, allowing for easier submissions, changes, panel programming selections, and conference planning. Another upgrade for our membership will be the move online with secure, 24/7 access for members to update personal information, check on membership status, register for conferences, and much more.

Here at the HQ, we sadly said farewell to Jeff Davis, who moved on to the San Francisco Symphony after the Salem conference, but are delighted to announce that Jacqueline Wah has joined us as the new Administrative Assistant. Jackie brings a wealth of experience to the WHA as well as a terrific personality full of grace, wit and charm. Our goal at the headquarters is to provide you with excellent service and exceed your expectations. Please let us know how we are doing--we love to hear from you.

Have a wonderful holiday season and thank you again for your support of the WHA.

Winston Welch

Executive Director
