2021 ASCP Recipes and Doodles

Every good meeting is accompanied by great food and drink! In our virtual efforts to feed our creative brains and nourish our souls, the ASCP Steering Committee is inviting you to submit your favorite drink, appetizer, main dish, side dish, or dessert recipe. Your name and any pertinent information and comments about your inspired offering will accompany your submission (unless you wish to remain anonymous) in ASCP’s inaugural cookbook.

If a recipe doesn’t capture your interest, submit an original doodle, cartoon, or art to help illustrate the recipe book.

CLICK HERE to submit your entry. The deadline to be included in a piece of ASCP history is Monday, April 12, 2021.

We will compile the masterpiece and send a digital book to all registered participants and post online with the meeting materials.

I look forward to seeing and tasting your creative and diverse entries.

Virtual Exercise Challenge

Who says a virtual meeting can’t be fun?!


Every year, the ASCP Annual Meeting offers a Fun Run, in which attendees have the opportunity to race with fellow friends and colleagues at 6:00 am. As a perk to the race, all participants receive a complimentary t-shirt commemorating the event. Since the race is only applicable to runners and walkers, not everyone participates. 2021 will be different!

The 2021 ASCP Steering Committee wants to encourage you to choose one (or all) of the activities offered to get your blood pumping, heart rate up, and away from the computer. The challenges offered are intended to target something for everyone. As long as you participate and complete one of ASCP’s approved challenges, you qualify for a t-shirt commemorating the virtual 2021 ASCP Annual Meeting. Set aside two hours any time during the week of the conference to exercise, enter your results, and receive a t-shirt.

At the conclusion of the meeting, you will have the opportunity to view your results as well as your ranking. Additionally, everyone who participates will receive an email with a link to order your shirt and it will be mailed directly to you.

Get energized, get moving, and be revitalized!
