The ASA Education and Extension Section serves as the coordinating body for the multiple education and outreach activities within ASA, as driven by the Communities. for In the new ASA governance structure adopted in 2010, the Education and Extension Section replaces Divisions A-1 (Resident Education) and A-4 (Extension Education). Sections are the unifying organizational framework for Community activities. The primary purpose of Sections and Communities will be to better assemble members of common interest, facilitate planning, communication, and coordination of programs and services.
Most programs and service activities will be initiated within Communities, with Sections providing more of a coordinating management role. The broad areas of Sections will also provide a governance voice for the Society, with the seven Sections represented on the ASA Board.
The following Communities are currently served by the Education and Extension Section:

* 2011 Section Business Meeting Report
There were three symposia within our section at the 2011 annual meeting. Additionally, we co-sponsored a symposium with Division C-3. Every community in the Education and Extension Section was actively engaged in the annual meeting. They each held a community meeting and organized at least one symposium or oral session. The possible exception to this was the Advisors Developing Undergrad Student Activities Community, which was very active at the annual meeting, but did not hold a symposium or oral session per se.
The Education and Extension Section held its annual business meeting on Monday morning, October 17. Although we were a bit worried about the timing of the meeting, we had good attendance, with approximately 25 people in the room, including representatives from each of the Communities in the Section. Following the Presidential message and Board Representative report, we had discussions on possible future section activities. A couple of the ideas discussed were: 1) greater involvement of community college educators in the society and section, and 2) greater involvement of global partners, particularly from South America, in future meetings, with perhaps the 2013 meeting in Tampa, FL being an ideal location for this to occur.
There was no election for the 2012 Vice-Leader since the leadership for this section was determined for several years at its formation from former Divisions A-1 and A-4.
