Meeting Information and ASA Covid-19 Statement

ASA Operations Continue During Covid-19 Shut Down

The ASA Officers and Members of the Executive Council want you to know that the Society is continuing operations during the COVID-19 shutdown.  The Executive and Technical Councils are meeting regularly via teleconference and staff members are working remotely. If you have a need for assistance or information you can reach ASA at or 516-576-2360.

Victor Sparrow, ASA President, is leading the effort to ensure that the administrative and Technical Committee business of the Society will be conducted as originally planned although there will not be a spring meeting.

Most administrative committees are meeting virtually between May 11 and May 20, 2020. Besides the Executive and Technical councils that will meet twice, 32 other committees will meet one time.

Open Meetings of Technical Committees will offer an opportunity for members in several time zones to participate.  All meetings are set between May 12 and May 14 and members have been invited to participate in these open meetings.

Please see the schedule of the meetings to be held during the period 11-20 May.

Our sincere wishes for the continued safety and health are extended to our members and to the entire acoustics community.  We hope that many of you will participate in the events that will be offered virtually.

If you experience difficulty connecting to a meeting, please contact or call 516-576-2360.


Messages from ASA Leaders

During our semiannual meetings ASA holds a Plenary Session open to all members of the Society. As part of the Plenary officers describe accomplishments of awardees, present an overview of the status of the Society, and provide updates about our future meetings. ASA leaders have recorded three videos that contain some of the information normally shared with members and friends of ASA at the Plenary. 

Greetings and Update
