I look forward to meeting with many of you at CSP this month. In my keynote address, I'll describe a number of important activities that have been undertaken recently by the ASA, discuss a few decisions made and lessons learned during my career (so far), and offer some reflections on CSP, itself. I also look forward to hearing what is on your minds. To that end, I have a specific invitation.
In my February President's Corner column, I told some stories about how I've personally found value in the ASA, as distinguished from the tangible benefits (magazine and journal subscriptions, discounted meeting registrations, etc.) that we all receive in exchange for our dues. I also asked readers to write to me with their stories so I can form a picture of how and where the ASA membership finds value.
On Friday and Saturday at CSP 2014, you'll have an opportunity to tell your stories on camera, rather than via email. Megan Murphy, the ASA’s communications manager, will be filming attendees telling their stories about personally finding value in the ASA. If you're interested in participating, please write to Megan (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let her know what time(s) would be good for you.
Thanks, and I'll see you in Tampa.
