New England Chapter
American Society for Indexing

Online Member Directory

The New England Chapter (NEASI) is a chapter of the American Society for Indexing (ASI). All members of ASI who reside in New England can be members of NEASI at no additional fee. ASI members who are residents of states outside New England may join NEASI by notifying ASI. A small fee must be paid, if the NEASI membership is in addition to one's home state chapter membership. ASI members of other countries may also choose NEASI as their chapter affiliation.

NEASI currently has about 75 members. Those members listed below are a subset of the membership who have specifically requested that their names be included in this online directory. If you are a member, and would like to be included, see the Online Member Directory Submission page. Listing in the NEASI online member directory is voluntary and the information is written by the individual member. Inclusion in no way reflects endorsement or quality control by NEASI.

For a complete list of all NEASI members, current ASI members may log into the ASI web site members area, select "Searchable Membership Directory" and then search for members by chapter/sections, selecting New England Chapter from the scroll-box list.
