Report of the ASA Task Force on Membership Lays Out a Blueprint for Change

What do you think would help make ASA a more vibrant, effective association? This question was at the heart of the survey of current and former members of the association fielded by the ASA Task Force on Membership, which received more than 2,500 responses. As part of their work, the Task Force also conducted an external benchmarking study, a study of 11 years of administrative membership data, 5 focus groups, a wiki survey, and 12 follow up interviews.
