Planning for the 6th Biennial ASHEcon Meeting at Penn, June 12-15, 2016 is entering the final stage! By now everyone has received notification about the status of their abstracts. It was highly competitive this year and only about half of abstracts could be accepted for oral presentation.
Program chairs for the meeting may be contacting you to discuss a paper or chair a session. A terrific meeting like this depends on contributions from everyone!
Also remember that students qualify for discounted membership and registration fees if they attend an institution that is a current University member ($600 per year). We invite you to consider the benefits of an institutional membership. In addition to the University membership, we offer an Organization membership for non-academic institutions. For $1,200 per year, Organization members enjoy free space at our biennial meeting, half off advertising, and other benefits. For our most dedicated supporters, we offer a Sustaining membership. For $3,000 per year, in addition to the benefits of a University and an Organization membership, Sustaining members receive access to our membership directory, free advertising, and free booth space at our biennial meeting, among many other benefits. If your institution has not yet joined ASHEcon, we urge you to join or to lobby your director or department head to do so!
