The ACA continues to be a vibrant organisation. A new Special Interest Group (SIG), the General Interest Group, has been formed and the Elizabeth A. Wood Science Writing Award has been instituted for Science Writing, for which all ACA members can submit material that has appeared in a newspaper or a popular magazine. A statement on Ethics in Crystallography has been adopted by the ACA Council and published in the ACA Newsletter. The yearly ACA meetings continue to be highly successful. Though many aspects of crystallography continue to be represented, the emphasis on the life sciences is evident from the distribution of the contributed papers. The ACA, which includes both US and Canadian crystallographers, continues to be a very strong Regional Associate of the IUCr.
