Since its organization in 1929, the Society has grown steadily in membership and stature. At this time about 7500 men and women who work in acoustics throughout the U.S. and abroad belong to this prestigious Society. From the beginning, the Acoustical Society has sought to serve the widespread interests of its members and the acoustics community in all branches of acoustics, both theoretical and applied.
The Society is primarily a voluntary organization and attracts the interest, commitment, and service of a large number of professionals. Their contributions in the formation, guidance, administration, and development of the ASA are largely responsible for its world-wide preeminence in the field of acoustics.
The Northeastern chapter aims to build a cross-disciplinary community for students who are interested in acoustics and to provide an environment that enables first hand experience and sharing of ideas. NEUASA seeks to introduce students’ creativity into the equation, enriching the experience of learning acoustics, by understanding not only the final solution but the creative process as well. We host hands on projects, seminars, audiology talks and meet-ups.
