105th Annual Meeting Banner

It's not too early to begin planning your participation in the next ASA Annual Meeting, August 14-17, 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia.  After a number of northeast and northwest meeting locations, ASA is pleased to return to the South for the next Annual Meeting.  Atlanta is one of the easiest continental US cities to visit, with Hartsfield Airport serving as the hub for Delta and AirTran Airlines and featuring service by most major carriers.  Access to downtown from the airport couldn't be easier with a MARTA (subway) station right at the airport.

Full Registration will open in April 2010, when the rosters of Courses, Didactic Seminars, and Tours are posted with the preliminary program schedule. Preregistrants will be able to add these activities to their existing preregistrations at that time.
