Mr. Robert J. Sager, President
Association of Washington Geographers
Pierce College
Lakewood, WA 98498-1999

Dear Mr. Sager:

I are writing to tell you that the Executive Planning Board of the National Council for Geographic Education (NCGE) approved the Association of Washington Geographers (AWG) as an affiliate at their meeting April 9, 2000, in Pittsburgh.

We look forward to having AWG members involved with the NCGE meeting in Vancouver, August 1-4, 2001. Some of our affiliates arrange to meet formally or informally at the NCGE meeting and provide periodic reports on state activities for publication in the newsletter, Perspective.

On behalf of members of the Executive Planning Board and all NCGE members, I welcome AWG as an affiliate. I know that the affiliation will be beneficial to both organizations.



Ruth I. Shirey
