A discussion meeting is being sponsored by the Technical Committee on Noise to review progress made to date on the actions initiated at the Denver, 1993 meeting to increase the role of the ASA in noise and noise control. Much of this action evolved out of an all-day workshop held at the Ottawa, 1993 ASA meeting. Members of the steering committee and others involved in related supporting activity will review specific progress made in the areas of education, increasing public awareness about noise and noise control, and encouraging joint activity in this area with other professional organizations. Included will be a report on a trial presentation on acoustics and noise given to 6 high school classes. Discussion about, and review of opportunities for involvement with, these activities will be encouraged.
