After the Vote
Author(s): Donald C. O'Shea

Paper Abstract

Almost two years to the day after the first meeting on OSA-SPIE unification took place, the proposal was rejected by OSA members and narrowly approved by SPIE members. Both memberships returned nearly identical results, with 51% of the voting SPIE members and 49% of the voting OSA members supporting the merger. Although it passed on the SPIE vote, though just barely, the merger will not take place because of the negative OSA vote.
