This issue of Acoustics Today (AT) has a “From the President” column and three “Sound Perspectives” essays that discuss how the COVID pandemic has affected members of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) and the Society itself.

Diane, in her piece, talks about these issues and how the ASA met numerous challenges.
