Access for All

ASA is committed to making the virtual annual meeting accessible for all. If you require accessibility services such as captioning or ASL interpretation, please contact us at or (202) 247-9848 with the title, date, time of the session/meeting you plan to join and the service requested. We ask that you submit your request by July 1 so we can coordinate service. We will try to fulfill requests made after July 1 but cannot guarantee service.  

Using Zoom
The virtual annual meeting will be navigated via the ASA online program. All sessions and meetings (with the exception of plenary sessions) will be run on the Zoom platform.

All real-time sessions utilizing ASA provided Zoom rooms will be live transcribed. 

If you require a phone number to join a Zoom session, please contact us at or (202) 247-9848 with the title, date, and time of the session/meeting. We will provide the phone number to you. Please note that the phone numbers will not be included in the online program.
