83rd Annual Meeting
October 16 and 17, 2017
Silver Spring, MD
Alert: This is a change from previous years. We are meeting on Monday and Tuesday this year rather than the traditional Tuesday-Wednesday combination. 

The ASARB sessions are essentially noon-to-noon, with the evening meal an integral part of the sessions. This is where the participants can network with others who have similar questions and projects. 

The Yearbook committee traditionally meets the morning before the noon start, with the Religion Census meeting the afternoon following the ASARB meeting. These meetings are open to all interested ASARB members. 

Example of Typical Meeting Schedule:
​First Day
11:00 a.m. ASARB Board of Directors Meeting

12noon -- Registration
Welcome and Introductions
Special Reports and/or Panel Discussions

Dinner


Second Day
Discussions and Presentations Related to Data Collection and Distribution
Report from Yearbook and Religion Census Committees
Business Meeting

12:00 Adjourn




This year's planning committee members are Alexei Krindatch, Kathleen Jones, and Mary Gautier.
