SAS 2020

Our vision for the future

 

The SAS 2020 planning effort was completed and approved by the Governing Board at SciX in 2016. Please review the attached content for more information. Please contact the SAS Office to get involved or help out with ideas that will help SAS achieve its 2020 objectives!

SAS 2020 Vision

 

 

Hi all, 

 
We're starting off the SAS 2020 initiative with a meeting at Pittcon, Sunday March 8th from 9am to 4pm in Room 341.  We will be discussing our vision for the future of the society.  All SAS members are welcome so please spread the word!  If you are unable to attend the meeting, we welcome input via email SASfor2020@gmail.com
 
We look forward to hearing from you!
 
Diane Parry, Ph.D. 
Society for Applied Spectroscopy (SAS) President, 2015
 
 
Here are a few questions to stimulate discussion:
 
1) How big should SAS become?
2) What should the scientific scope of SAS include? (There have been a few new developments since SAS was formed in 1954!)    
3) Where should SAS be?  (We have a UK Section, and quite a few very active, non-US members today). 
4) SAS is the Society for Applied Spectroscopy.  What should we seek to accomplish?  Are the original objectives right for 2020, too?
 
 
Some notes from our kickoff meeting!
 
1) How big should SAS become?
Today’s membership, at around 2000 world-wide members, feels like a true family. Our goal is to maintain the Society as a close-knit home for those who practice Spectroscopy #mySASfamily
 
2) What should the scientific scope of SAS include? (There have been a few new developments since SAS was formed in 1954!)    

The Society for Applied Spectroscopy welcomes everyone who is a Spectroscopy, or would like to know more about Spectroscopy.  A Spectroscopist is anyone who seeks to understand or control the properties of matter at the atomic or molecular level by means of its interaction with, or emission of, light of different wavelenths.

 

3)Where Should SAS encourage membership?

SAS embraces global membership and collaboration.  We want all members, no matter where they live, to enjoy as many of the SAS member benefits as possible. 

  • A key component of our SAS 2020 global strategy is to enhance the member experience of everyone, through the formal creation of new SAS Regional, Technical, and Student Sections. 
  • Another dimension of this strategy is to foster affiliations with new or existing, like-minded organizations.

4)SAS is the Society for Applied Spectroscopy.  What should we seek to accomplish?  Are the original objectives right for 2020, too?

Our current mission statement: The Society for Applied Spectroscopy is a nonprofit organization formed to advance and disseminate knowledge and information concerning the art and science of spectroscopy, and other allied sciences, to advance the professional standing and growth of the Society and its members, to coordinate cooperative endeavors of its individual members and sections, and to promote and maintain a close bond among its members.
