Technical Committee on Psychological and Physiological Acoustics


Purpose: To serve as the main channel of communication between members active in Psychological and Physiological Acoustics and the Executive Council of the Society. Under the direction of the Chair, the Technical Committee is responsible for organizing technical sessions, special sessions, and symposia for Society meetings, informing the membership of new developments and problems that might concern them and developing solutions, and providing a forum for informal discussion of issues of interest to the membership.

Membership: The Technical Committee has ~18 members who serve three-year terms and a Chair who serves a three-year term and is elected by the elected TC members. Each year after the Spring meeting, six members end their terms and are replaced by six new members. The election of new members is held at the open meeting of the Technical Committee at the Spring ASA meeting. The outgoing members prepare the ballot. ASA members interested in serving on the Technical Committee are encouraged to contact the Chair.
