History

ASI RM started as an informal group of indexers that included Edyie Porpa, Hannah Huse, and Ingrid Becher, in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In 1994 the group became a chapter of ASI, and grew to a membership of nearly thirty. The chapter’s first conference was held in fall of 1996. Since that time, there has been an annual fall conference and an annual spring meeting, rotating between locations along the Front Range.
