Northeast meeting survey

Over the years, the Northeast Section of ASAS and the Northeast Branch of ADSA have gone from holding annual section meetings at regional campuses, to meeting at the Joint Annual Meetings with a symposium, graduate student competition, and business meeting.

The latter model worked well since many expressed concerns about traveling to 2 meetings a year and the two societies were meeting together. However, because the societies met separately this past year, we did not hold a meeting or symposium, and instead of our traditional graduate student oral competition, we initiated a successful video abstract competition.

This has led to several conversations among the board members about the future of the Northeast Section/Branch. As we consider the future of the Northeast section of the ASAS and branch of the ADSA, the board would like to solicit input from the Northeast membership.

If you are a Northeast member, please complete the Northeast meeting survey. Your elector ID and password were emailed to you on August 10 and a reminder was sent today, August 21. Please provide feedback by August 25.
