The National Humanities Alliance board "urges all NHA members to designate at least one of their individual members or staff to come to Washington on the 12th and participate." Would anyone like to be ADS' designee? We're not in a position to pay your expenses, but you'd have our thanks. Let me know if you're interested or would like further information. - Allan Metcalf
