In July 2018, facing declining revenues and potential restructuring of RUSA, the BRASS Executive Committee charged the Future of BRASS Task Force to consider all possible scenarios, along with the pros and cons of each, for the future of BRASS. The Task Force shared its results in January 2019 (BRASS, 2019). This article takes another look at BRASS by focusing on its purpose and future potential, reasoning that the future of BRASS is less dependent on where we belong than on what we do and how we do it as a professional organization.
