As you may know, ASA members are invited each year to submit proposals for
initiatives that support the Association's mission. In the past, we have
funded initiatives with wide-ranging emphases, from reaching out to the K-12
system to enhancing technological access for chapters and sections to
increasing diversity in our profession. The 2010 ASA budget again includes
funding to support these Member Initiatives. We hope you will consider
participating in this activity and will think of a project that has the
potential to contribute to the advancement of the association. 
If you plan to submit a proposal, please do so no later than February 2,
2010. For more information about how to submit a proposal and a list of
proposals funded in prior years, please see

this program. They look forward to receiving your proposal.
