Future of the Field Campaign

To celebrate its 70th anniversary and the 50th anniversary of the Convention ASEEES is undertaking a $700,000 campaign that will double the funding available to support the future of the field.  ASEEES seeks the support of individuals and institutional donors (foundations, associations, organizations, and corporations) to achieve this goal.
