The Acoustical Society of America (ASA) engages and fosters members by hosting the Early-Career Acousticians Retreats (EAR). EAR is a two-day workshop for early career professionals in the field of acoustics focused on developing leadership and networking skills. The included events allow participants to connect and socialize with fellow early career acousticians as well as more senior members of the Society, learn about mentoring relationships, leadership skills, and about the Society, and contribute to the future of ASA.

Past EARs were held in 2016 in Salt Lake City (Agenda in PDF) and in 2019 in San Diego (Agenda in PDF). The next EAR is planned for Spring 2022 in Denver.
