The American Scientific Affiliation

ASA NewsNote March 17, 2016


With just two weeks left in our fiscal year, we'd encourage you to partner with us to help us reach our goals. As a member-led and member-funded organization, ASA relies heavily on the generosity of its members to fund our operating budget. If God is leading you to invest in ASA's important work of being a network of Christians in the sciences, please consider a gift today. If you would kindly submit your contribution (online by credit card or mail by check) by March 31, we'd be most grateful. Thank you so much for your ongoing faithful support!


On April 8 - 9, the Executive Council will be meeting here at ASA headquarters in Topsfield for their semi-annual council meeting. This is an extended time for the leadership to convene in order to conduct important business as well as to discuss and formulate strategic plans for the long term sustainability of the organization. Would you please join us in praying for this meeting as well as the upcoming executive director transition. Please plan to join us via live-streaming on Friday April 8 at 7:15pm EDT or see the recording of the farewell to Randy and welcome to Leslie.


Please plan now for our 75th anniversary annual meeting at Azusa Pacific University taking place on July 22 - July 25, 2016. Excitement is building and we are getting an overwhelming response of people planning to join us!  Stay tuned for registration information which will be released in mid April.


Vicki Best, Director of Business Development, just returned from a great trip visiting our great ASA members in the great state of Florida.

 Tom Cummings: 63 year member at 90 years young
 Don and Joyce Munro: Former Executive Director for 10 years
 Lee Branscome: 35 year member and friends

Dave Singer, Judy and Larry Brock: Boston area members wintering in Fort Myers


Vicki's time in Florida was very productive and meaningful. It was a wonderful time of interacting and fellow shipping with as well as getting to know these special people on their home turf. As ASA seeks to maintain a vibrant network of Christians in the sciences, it was a great opportunity for productive discussion and mutual support.
