Component Recognition Program
The ASA Component Recognition Program was created to recognize excellence, encourage continuous improvement among ASA Components and to ensure alignment with ASA Strategic Objectives. The goals of the Program are to promote and grow member engagement opportunities, recognize innovation, and benchmark successful programs that benefit members through the effective partnering of ASA and the component societies working together to elevate the standards of membership value. The program was developed jointly by Component Relations staff, in partnership with a group of dedicated component society and Committee on Membership volunteers. Questions about the Program can be submitted to the Component Relations Manager.
