The American Society for Acoustic Ecology welcomed two new regional chapters to its national organization in 2011, the Colorado Society for Acoustic Ecology (ColoSAE) and the New England Forum for Acoustic Ecology (NEFAE).
ColoSAE was formed in July 2011 to represent ASAE in the state of Colorado. Michael Komatsu Doherty serves as its Chair and representative to the ASAE Board of Directors.
NEFAE was formed in September 2011 and Jed Speare serves as its Chair and representative to the ASAE Board. NEFAE members have affiliations with the New England Phonographers Union (NEPHONO) among other regional arts organizations, music series’ groups, and universities. The chapter has an interest in bringing acoustic ecology to different New England locations through concerts, events, forums, and discussions. For more information, contact Jed Speare at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every ASAE chapter offers local and regional representation for acoustic ecology in the United States. If you live in Colorado or the New England and want to join ASAE, we encourage you to visit the websites of these chapters and their chapter representatives know. Links to all eight ASAE chapters are listed here. Annual membership to ASAE begins and ends with the calendar year, and includes many benefits:
- Membership in the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology
- Annual subscription to Soundscape: The Journal of Acoustic Ecology
- Reduced admission to WFAE and ASAE-sponsored conferences and events
- Connection to a community of local, national, and international “ear-minded” people, resources, and activities
Joining ASAE is easy, visit the ASAE membership page to learn how.
