Many educators experience a letdown following a professional convention; they wish that the synergy and camaraderie fostered there could continue indefinitely. This was the case for many of the participants in the "Technology in the Community College Online" conference sponsored by the University of Hawaii Kapiolani campus in April 1998. A number of participants strongly desired to continue the dialogue initiated during the TCC conference, and consequently formed a new professional organization several months later. Readers of The Technology Source may be interested in the services offered by the new World Association for Online Education.

In September 1998, the World Association for Online Education (WAOE) was incorporated as a nonprofit entity in California. Composed of educators and professionals from both the eastern and western hemispheres, WAOE is dedicated to the worldwide enhancement of online education.

Information about WAOE is available at the organization's Web site, http://www.waoe.org/. President Steve McCarty of Kagawa College, Japan, welcomes questions. His e-mail address is steve@kagawa-jc.ac.jp.
