Greater Boston Chapter
October 3, 2013

Welcome and Invoice
Dear Members and Friends:

Thank you for a very successful 2012-2013 season.  We are preparing for another exciting year of events and meetings for the Greater Boston Chapter of the Acoustical Society of America.  Tentative plans for this upcoming season include a tour of Sound Seal’s facility in Agawam, and presentations on a wide variety of topics such as healthcare acoustics, a continuation of our discussion regarding Massachusetts DEP policies, psychoacoustics in audio recording, and music therapy.  As always, we will continue our relationship with local student chapters, neighboring local chapters of the ASA, and other related organizations.

This year’s officers are:

Chairperson:                         Elizabeth Lamour                          elamour@cavtocci.com
Secretary:                             Victoria Suha                           victoria.suha@hotmail.com
Treasurer:                             Nicole Cuff                                        ncuff@acentech.com
National Liaison:                   Eric Reuter                        ereuter@reuterassociates.com

Executive Committee:
Bill Cavanaugh                    Herb Singleton                                     Alicia Larsen
Mary Florentine                   Lawrence Copley

The Executive Committee and officers unanimously voted to declare Victoria Suha the Chapter’s first Student Representative. Victoria, also the Greater Boston Chapter’s new Secretary, is a student at Northeastern University and is working hard to form NU’s Student Chapter. We are looking forward to including more students in our chapter activities and collaborating with student chapters.

As a group, our goals are to reach a broad spectrum of people with a common interest in acoustics, to gather about once a month to discuss topics in the field, and to offer perspectives on current issues in acoustics. Please visit the chapter website at https://www.gbcasa.org to find the latest chapter information. We encourage you to join our email distribution to receive meeting notices.  You can sign up instantly from the chapter website’s homepage.  Also, if you are a Linked In or Twitter user, please look for us online.

The Greater Boston Chapter and its events are supported on a volunteer basis.  Please be aware that it is not necessary to be a member of ASA National to join our local chapter, and guests are always welcome at all events.  If you would prefer to pay your dues by hand, please take a moment to fill out and submit the enclosed membership form with your payment.  Although we are partially supported by ASA, ASA membership does not include membership to the regional chapters, and we rely on dues to ensure that meetings are fully paid for.  Be sure to include your email address as we will continue to distribute our meeting notices solely via email this year.  Alternatively, you will be able to pay your membership dues on our website via PayPal.

We look forward to seeing you at our meetings!

Sincerely,
Liz Lamour
Chairperson; elamour@cavtocci.com
