2008 ASA Annual Meeting in Boston

Want a Personalized Annual Meeting Schedule? Looking for a Restaurant in Boston?

To help get the most from the 2008 ASA Annual Meeting, attendees can visit www.asanet.org/cs/root/leftnav/meetings/2008_preliminary_program to generate a personalized schedule of their daily activities. It will list all the sessions and events you indicate you want to attend in a printable calendar format.

Reservations, please . . .

dining_tableASA’s Boston Regional Spotlight Committee, with the gracious assistance of many fellow ASA members with Boston cuisine experience, have produced the Restaurant Guide, which will be included in each registrant’s program materials at the 2008 meeting.

In the meantime, ASA provides a sampling of restaurants included in the guide and other resources in our online dining guide (see www.asanet.org/cs/root/leftnav/meetings/
). The guide is organized by section/neighborhoods of Boston. A pricing guide helps with selections. Restaurant reservations fill up quickly over weekends, so we recommend you make advance reservations. To facilitate this, ASA provides a link to the online restaurant reservation system called Opentable.com, a reputable source for making dining reservations and accruing credits for doing so.
