 The Acoustical Society of America (ASA) serves the interests of its more than 7,000 members around the world in all branches of acoustics, both theoretical and applied. To achieve this goal, the ASA has established technical committees charged with keeping abreast of the developments and needs of the membership in specialized fields as well as identifying new ones as they develop. The Technical Committees include Acousti- cal Oceanography, Animal Bioacoustics, Architectural Acoustics, Biomedical Acoustics, Engineering Acoustics, Musical Acoustics, Noise, Physical Acoustics, Psychological and Physiological Acoustics, Signal Processing in Acoustics, Speech Communication, Struc- tural Acoustics and Vibration, and Underwater Acoustics. This diversity is one of the Society’s unique and strongest assets because it fosters and encourages cross-disciplinary learning, collaboration, and interactions.
ASA Publications and meetings incorporate the diversity of these Technical Committees. In particular, publications play a major role in the Society. The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America (JASA) includes contributed papers and patent reviews. JASA Express Letters (JASA-EL) and Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics (POMA) are online, open- access publications offering rapid publication. Acoustics Today, published quarterly, is a popular open-access magazine.
The ASA biannual meetings offer opportunities for attendees to share information, with strong support throughout the career continuum, from students to retirees. Meetings incorporate many opportunities for professional and social interactions, and attendees find the personal contacts a rewarding experience. These experiences result in building a robust network of fellow scientists and engineers, many of whom become lifelong friends and colleagues.
From the Society’s inception, members recognized the importance of developing acous- tical standards, with a focus on terminology, measurement procedures, and criteria for determining the effects of noise and vibration. The ASA Standards Program serves as the Secretariat for four American National Standards Institute Committees and provides administrative support for several international standards committees.
Throughout its history, the strength of the ASA has resided in attracting the interest and commitment of scholars devoted to promoting the knowledge and practical applications of acoustics. The unselfish activity of these individuals in the development of the Society is largely responsible for the growth and present stature of the ASA.
