The ASA Board of Trustees has approved procedures for introducing New Business at the annual business meeting. The procedures, approved on September 3, 2019, are as follows:

The agenda of the business meeting to be held during each Annual meeting of the Society shall be the responsibility of the Board of Trustees. The Board shall include on the agenda any item of Society business requested at least one month in advance of the meeting by a majority of the Board of Trustees.

No question of a substantive nature other than routine business shall be placed on the agenda unless it has been announced to the membership at least two weeks in advance of the meeting; it shall be the prerogative of the Society officers to substitute a mail or secure electronic ballot on such a question for a vote at the business meeting.

No question of a substantive nature other than routine business shall be in order under "New Business" unless it has been received by the secretary-treasurer three weeks in advance of the meetings for transmission to the Board of Trustees. An exception shall be made if three-fourths of the Society members in attendance at the Business Meeting vote that such a question should be taken up at that meeting.

These procedures are similar to existing procedures for New Business at the annual business meetings of the Eastern Division of the American Philosophical Association. They provide for orderly consideration of New Business at the annual meeting.

New business for the 2019 agenda must be submitted for consideration by the Board no later than September 20. It should be submitted via e-mail to secretary-treasurer@aesthetics-online.org who will then transmit it to the Board of Trustees. The proposal for new business will be reviewed by the Board and, if approved, announced to members no later than September 27.

The business meeting for 2019 will be held on Saturday, October 12 from 1:30-2:45 pm in the Paradise Valley Room (2nd level), Sheraton Grand Phoenix. All registered participants at the meeting are welcome to attend.
