Mission Statement

Global provider of superior services for scientific societies

Description

The support organization, ACSESS, was created due to the restructuring of the ASA Board of Directors in 2009. ASA, CSSA, and SSSA voted to establish the support organization in order to provide operational efficiencies, as well as giving each of the Societies the flexibility to focus on specific programmatic activities. And while ASA, CSSA, and SSSA are the founders of ACSESS, the individual names remain unchanged and each retains its own 501(c)(3) status.

ASA, CSSA, and SSSA also envision continuing to add relevant organizations as part of the strategic plan for ACSESS to provide a full-spectrum of high quality management and administration services to nonprofit scientific societies. Membership in ACSESS is open to organizations interested in enhancing synergies within the broad categories of agronomic, crop, soil, food, environmental, and the natural resources sectors, while also coordinating and potentially consolidating professional activities such as the development of educational resources, public policy positions, industry standards, and/or information resources.
