Fall Issue 

I want to thank the 758 Acoustical Society of America (ASA) members who responded to the recent Acoustics Today (AT) survey. As promised in the survey, we awarded $50 gift cards (using an online random number generator) to fi ve ASA members. Th ey are David Bonnett, Raymond H. Dye, Gordon Ebbitt, Zhe-chen Guo, and Guillermo Rus. The results from the survey are discussed on page 84 of this issue.

This issue contains a very important statement about the ASA and future meetings by President Diane Kewley- Port. Although I realize (from the survey) that only about 60% of members read the From the President column (and perhaps 70% read this column), I would like to encourage every member to see Diane’s column.
