Our Spring issue of Critical Mass usually contains a schedule of CBSM-related events at ASA. As you probably know, the ASA has decided to cancel the originally scheduled conference for 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Some conference activities will still take place online. The business meeting for the CBSM section will take place virtually on Tuesday, August 11 at 10:30 am Pacific. The ASA will post the schedule of the virtual sessions and meetings online by July 20th.
