Our current membership is 578, but we need to get to 600 to retain our four ASA sessions. The final count for ASA sessions is done on September 30, so before September 30th we need to add 22 people to the section. Please consider sponsoring a graduate student or a colleague. The cost for sponsoring a graduate student is only $5, and it can be done very easily through this link: http://asa.enoah.com/Home/My-ASA/Gift-Section. Recipients of your section membership gift must be a current ASA member.
If you would like to sponsor a graduate student but do not know one who would like to join the section, we have a solution! Our fabulous Graduate Student Advisory Committee has identified ten students at various universities who are ASA members and would like to become members of our section. One of our Membership Committee members, Sarah Harkness, has this list. Simply email her (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let her know you’d like to sponsor a student from our list, and she will give you the information. Many thanks for your help!
