ASA Celebrates Chapters’ Success of Virtual Events

November 23, 2020

In March of 2020, ASA chapters were faced with the challenge of transitioning their in-person chapter events to virtual settings due to the ongoing pandemic. While the concept of virtual events and conferences isn’t new, the change brought about a variety of technical and logistical problems. However, ASA chapters have done an excellent job of leveraging these online platforms to provide networking and educational opportunities to their members. ASA would like to highlight a few of these outstanding virtual events.

8/27/2020 Houston Chapter: Expert Mock Witness Workshop & Mock Trial Event

9/24/2020 NorCal Chapter: ABCs of testimony: Attorney Tricks and Witness Traps

10/1/2020 Houston Chapter: “Valuing Wine is easy. Just ask my empty glass!”

10/8/2020 Boston Chapter: How to Qualify an Expert Appraiser and How to Impeach an Expert Appraiser

11/10/2020 Washington D.C. Chapter: Election Analysis Discussion with John Russell

ASA commends all chapters for not only providing virtual educational opportunities but in most cases, opening the events to the entirety of ASA. In addition to strengthening ASA, this has led to the interconnectedness between chapters and members that, under normal circumstances, would not have occurred. 

To our ASA chapter officers, thank you. While it certainly hasn’t been easy to adjust, you have made the most of it and have done an excellent job.
