Affairs of the Association
RON TYLER
The director has traditionally begun these annual reports by saying
that we have had another good year. I am pleased to say that 1989-
199o is no exception. We have had our share of problems fund-raising
in today's economic climate, but our budget is currently in the black,
though some individual programs are not covering their expenses. The
ninety-fourth annual meeting held in Austin on March i-3 was one of
the most enjoyable and successful in recent years, and we are involved
in many exciting projects in our publications and education divisions.
