Online Meetings Report for Spring, 2020

Throughout the spring global shutdown, ASA’s operations have continued undaunted. The Executive and Technical Councils have been meeting via teleconference and are very grateful to staff members who are supporting activities remotely.

The original spring meeting was replaced with nearly 50 administrative and business meetings held online. (See the schedule of the meetings held starting May 11, 2020). Important decisions related to future meetings were made by the Technical Council. A total of 60 special sessions are scheduled for the December 2020 meeting, and an additional 75 for the spring 2021 meeting in Seattle. Executive Council discussed future meetings and appointed a Virtual Technology Task Force. There were 12 Open Meetings of the Technical Committees online, with voting, that were quite successful (several meetings with over 90 participants).

A missing component in May was the Plenary Session that is open to the whole society. Our Plenary honors our awardees, introduces the new Fellows, and to provide updates about the status of the Society. In the spirit of the Plenary, the leadership recorded three videos that can be seen below.
