Campaign For Early Career Leadership

Supporting the Next Generation of Leaders

Acoustical Society Foundation Fund Launches Major Fundraising Campaign

The ASA has been developing a range of initiatives with the goal of expanding promotion and participation by early career members in academics, industry, government, and consulting. These initiatives began in 2016 as an outgrowth of the ASA Strategic Leadership Plan for the Future. An Early-Career Acousticians Retreat (EAR) was offered in conjunction with the spring 2016 ASA meeting in Salt Lake City and a second EAR will be held following the San Diego meeting in fall 2019. Early Career Travel Subsidies have also been offered to support attendance by early career members at ASA meetings. A range of workshops aimed at early career professionals have been developed including speed networking events, publishing workshops, and a grant panel. Lastly, communication with our early career members have been improved by sending emails that highlight meeting activities that may be of particular interest to them as well as ways to become more deeply engaged with the Society. The continuation of these activities will be supported by the newly formed Member Engagement Committee.

To further support the next generation of scientists and dedicated leaders in acoustics and the ASA, a new fellowship program, ASA Early Career Leadership Fellows, has been developed.  Early career acousticians who are selected for these fellowships must show commitment to ASA and to new personal endeavors that will reward the Society and enhance their personal growth as future leaders at the same time.  The plan is to award two fellowships annually, each on the order of $6,000, to support activities that enhance the Fellows’ leadership skills and/or potential within their profession and within the ASA, as proposed by the applicants themselves.
