In fall 2010, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) and our affiliate organizations, the Sleep Research Society (SRS), American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) and American Association of Sleep Technologists (AAST), will be moving our national headquarters to Darien, Illinois.
The AASM will shortly break ground on a new building to house these offices. This exciting move represents a number of investments by the AASM:
- Financial Investment – Moving from our current leased headquarters into a building owned by the organization marks a long-term investment in the future of our organization.
- Operational Investment – The AASM is working closely with our builders to ensure that this new structure is customized to fit our current and future needs (including a second level that will house meeting space for educational courses and events).
- Environmental Investment – The new building will be a green construction. Choosing to build in this manner illustrates the AASM’s commitment to preserve our environment for future generations.
Commemorative Time Capsule
In celebration of this significant move, the AASM plans to bury a commemorative time capsule within the building’s foundation (to be opened in the AASM’s centennial anniversary year of 2075). And we’re asking for your involvement!
What do you think should be included in the AASM’s time capsule?
