ASEE ANNUAL CONFERENCE—IN PERSON! IN JULY! IN CALIFORNIA!
The ASEE Annual Conference in Long Beach, Calif. is expected to take place in person, July 26–29. ASEE staff and leaders opted to move our signature event to later in the summer, hoping the July dates will give us another month for the vaccine to be distributed. ASEE looks forward to providing a venue to safely meet face-to-face. The opportunities to network and to spend time with colleagues and friends is invaluable...and greatly missed by us all!
