Posted by: Lorraine Cashman

Here are some recent announcements concerning the upcoming AFS Annual Meeting:

1. Available: A new block of hotel rooms near the Monteleone

The Royal St. Charles Hotel is now offering a conference rate for a limited block of rooms, which must be booked by October 3, 2012. The hotel is located at 135 St. Charles Ave, two blocks from the Hotel Monteleone. AFS rate for a single/double is $129/night. For reservations, call 1-800 455-3417 toll free and request the American Folklore Society group rate. All reservations must be guaranteed with a major credit card.

2. Wanted: Crones

From the Women’s Section:

We have volunteers! We have a plan! What we need is candidates to crone! If you are a member of AFS, a woman, and will be aged 50 or above by midnight December 31st, 2012, and you have never been croned, you have the fabulous opportunity of being croned in New Orleans, North American capitol of the carnivalesque... But you have to send us your name, so we know you're eligible.

Others, if you know someone who fits this description, send us their name, so we can crone them.

Send names to Kay Turner at sooner rather than later.

3. Wanted: Graduate Student Lounge Help

From the Graduate Student Section:

We will once again offer a graduate student lounge at this year's AFS conference in New Orleans, but the lounge depends on your help!

In case you didn't attend last year's meeting, the lounge is a place for graduate students to sit, talk, or meet up with other students with the added bonus of free snacks and coffee/tea.

In order for us to keep the lounge open, we need student volunteers to man/woman the barracks. Shifts will be roughly an hour long. The hours will depend on the availability of volunteers.
