Welcome to our dedicated page for our ASA Standards Working Group Volunteers. We invite you to join an ASA Standards Working Group and apply your expertise and experience to shape and develop ASA Standards for the acoustics field.

ASA Standards Working Groups allow you to: network and share best practices with your peers; leverage new skills and knowledge for your specialty area; and contribute to the growth of acoustics across industries through standards development.
