Don't miss this one! The 2002 ACC will be May 8-10 in Anchorage, Alaska. We anticipate offering quality papers, tutorials, workshops, and expanded exhibits so that the conference meets your needs for professional development and networking. In addition, we are planning on offering family programs both during the week and on the weekend so that you and your family can take advantage of the educational experience that Alaska offers. Be sure to watch the 2002 ACC web site www.ent.ohiou.edu/~acc2002 for details. Anchorage is located on the Cook Inlet, backed by the snow-capped Chugach Mountain Range, facing Mt. McKinley, tempered by the Pacific Ocean currents, and surrounded by wildlife, glaciers, and scenery. At 20,320 feet McKinley is the tallest peak in North America, and is visible from the city of 250,000 people. In May, the average temperature is 47F, with an average high of 54F. The average rainfall is 0.6 inches and there are nearly 20 hours of functional daylight. Culturally, the region is full of native Eskimo, Russian, explorer, boomtown, and outdoorsman history, art, and gifts. Anchorage is the start of the 1000-mile Iditerod Trail sled-dog race. For vacationers the combination of extended daylight, mountains, wilderness, ski resorts, visible wildlife, unique history, and the 39 feet tidal range of the inlet all combine for wonderful memories.
