"ASA’s Live Streaming Initiative and Early-Career Acousticians Retreat"

Abstract: The Acoustical Society of America (ASA) initiated a strategic planning process in 2014 that resulted in a ‘Strategic Leadership for the Future’ Plan for 2015 – 2025.  One of the priority objectives identified in that plan is to expand promotion and participation of early career members (prior to tenure, principal, or senior status).  This talk summarizes the actions that the ASA has undertaken to date towards achieving this objective and their preliminary outcomes, including its live streaming initiative of meeting content, an early-career acousticians retreat to gather ideas and feedback, and other activities in process.
