To be held in conjunction with Vision Expo

ASA will hold its next annual business meeting March 6 at The Sheraton Overland Park in Overland Park, Kan. The meeting coincides with the Vision Expo, an annual education and trade show event hosted by ASA’s affiliated association, ASA-Midwest.


The agenda will include an open meeting of the ASA board of directors, and ASA’s 2014 board will be announced. Dan Risley, ASA executive director, will conduct a swearing-in ceremony for the new board members who officially begin their terms at the close of the meeting.

Moving our annual meeting to coincide with ASA-Midwest’s Vision Expo exemplifies our strong desire to work together. The Vision program has quickly become a ‘can’t miss’ event and we are excited to be a part of it,” said Risley.

The ASA board meeting will be held Thursday from 1-5 p.m., preceding the Vision Expo Friday and Saturday, March 7-8. The official registration form for the March 6 meeting will be available soon on the ASA website –
