Dear ASA'ers - I hope this electronic version of the questionnaire makes
responding (to ASA, not me) more convenient to more members.
ASA's email address is
<firstname.lastname@example.org>. Please consider posting your responses to the ASA listserv
and inviting others to comment on them. The more feedback the Executive
Committee receives the better it will be able to chart ASA's course into
the next millenium.
