Ms. Donna Hines was the administrative coordinator of the 1999 seminar on the cultural impact of extraterrestrial contact on the Big Island of Hawaii, and is coordinating the seminar proceedings. Because of her long-standing interest in SETI, she also attended Bioastronomy 99. She is deputy director of the Foundation For the Future, which studies the highest impact factors affecting the next thousand years. She notes that contact with extraterrestrial intelligence might well turn out to be one of these factors. Prior to joining the Foundation in 1997, she was employed by Kistler Aerospace Corporation in Kirkland, Washington.
