ASAA's New England Chapter at the Clovis in the Southeast Conference, October 26-29, 2005

Conference speakers included: Dr. M. Fitzpatrick, Michael B. Collins, David G. Anderson, D. Shane Miller, Stephen J. Yerka, James S. Dunbar, C. Andrew Hemmings, Kenn Steffey, A.D. Pickering, Kara Bridgman Sweeney, J. Christopher Gillam, Tommy Charles, I. Randolph Daniels, Jr., Joseph M. McAvoy, Darrin L. Lowery, John B. Broster, Mark R. Norton, E. Breitburg, G. Barker, H. Blaine Ensor, Dennis Stanford, David S, Leigh, S. David Webb, Thomas W. Stafford, Jr., R. Graham, E. Lundelius, H. Semken, J. Southon, Steven L. Forman, John E. Foss, Daniel P. Wagner, J. Wah, J. Gingerich, Michael R. Waters, J. Foss, R. Firestone, A. West, T. Bunch, J. Wittke, Michael Faught, Elijah C. Ellerbush, Ted Goebel, and J. Morrow.
