Dear Fellow ACMS Member,

Many of you will be attending the upcoming Association for Asian Studies (AAS) meetings scheduled for March 23-25 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, DC..

As in the past, several ACMS events are being organized at the same time -- and we want to make sure that you are aware of those meetings in advance as you plan your schedule:

1. Annual General Meeting involving ACMS members as well as any "friends of Mongolia" who may wish to attend. For now, please set aside 5 PM on Friday, March 23 for this meeting. We plan to reserve a room in a restaurant or other venue near the Mongolian Embassy in Georgetown, combining an informal "Happy Hour" with an opportunity to provide an overview of ACMS programs and activities from both last year and in the year ahead. We also look forward to introducing Tricia Turbold, the new ACMS country director in Ulaanbaatar. Again, if you think you will be able to attend, please notify Executive Director Jonathan Addleton directly:

2. Reception Hosted by Embassy of Mongolia: The Mongolian Embassy in Washington, DC has kindly offered to host a recepton for both ACMS and the Mongolia Society on the fringes of the upcoming AAS conference. The reception will begin at 6:30 PM at the Mongolian Embassy in Georgetown on Friday, March 23. ACMS members are invited to attend -- however, to enter the Embassy you will need to receive a formal invitation prior to the event. Again, if any ACMS members are in Washington, DC at the time and think that they might want to attend this Embassy reception, please notify Executive Director Jonathan Addleton by February 12 at the latest, to ensure that you receive an invitation ahead of time:

3. Board Meeting involving both executive board members and Institutional board members. For now, please reserve 1 PM on Friday, March 23 for this meeting. We will meet in the home of one of our Board members who lives near the Wardman Park Marriott Hotel. Board members, please contact Executive Director Jonathan Addleton directly if you plan to attend (or if you wish to join by phone or skype):
