“FROM THE STUDENT COUNCIL”
(Echoes newsletter column describing Cancun November 2010 ASA meeting)
Hola from sunny Cancun! Student attendance at this meeting was excellent with approximately 75 attendees at the student icebreaker, 175 at the student reception, and 40 at the new student orientation session. The goals of these events are to make students aware of all the opportunities available at ASA meetings, connect with each other and mentors, and have an opportunity to voice their opinions to the Executive Council through the Student Forum. The Student Council would also like to congratulate Dr. Christy Holland, from the University of Cincinnati, who received the 2010 ASA Student Council Mentoring Award at the Wednesday night student reception. Nominations for the next award, to be presented at the fall 2012 meeting in Kansas City, are due by July 15, 2011. All nomination forms can be found on the ASA student website at www.acosoc.org/student. Looking ahead, the spring meeting in Seattle promises to be an exciting meeting for students. In addition to our regular student activities, the Student Council will be hosting a special session entitled, “Introduction to Technical Committee Research and Activities: Especially for Students and First-time Meeting Attendees,” which will feature brief talks by a representatives from each of the 13 Technical Committees. Thanks to all who participated in student activities in Cancun, and we look forward to seeing you at the upcoming Seattle meeting!
