ASA Annual Meeting 2012

Unable to attend the meeting in Denver?

There's a new webcasting feature for the plenary sessions at #ASA2012.

 

PLEASE NOTE: We have a slight change of venue for the Family Section reception. We still will meet in the Denver Performing Arts Complex. But now we will be in the Studio Loft. Formerly, we were planning to meet in the Chambers Grant Salon.

The Studio Loft is an intriguing and "arty" space.

To get to the Studio Loft from the Hyatt Regency hotel, you can walk (north)west along 14th Street. It is just beyond the intersection with Champa Street. Look for a large black awning that says "The Studio Loft." There will be a greeter at the door to direct you to the reception. It should take about 10 minutes to walk there. I am attaching a map for your convenience [pdf] [.docx], which you can print and bring with you to Denver, if you like.

If you are in Denver, I hope that you will attend the reception on Sunday, August 19, 6:30-8:30 pm. Members of the Population Section will be joining us. This is an opportunity to interact with your colleagues, support the winners of our section's awards, and enjoy free beverages and hors d'oeuvres. It may be the social event of the summer!
