The Oregon Chapter of the American String Teachers Association (OR-ASTA) was founded to promote string playing in the state of Oregon and to serve Oregon's members of the American String Teachers Association. Its officers are elected every two years by a vote of the membership. 

ASTA, founded more than 60 years ago, is a membership organization for string and orchestra teachers and players, helping them to develop and refine their careers.  ASTA's members range from budding student teachers to artist-status performers. The organization provides a vast array of services, including instrument insurance, an award-winning scholarly journal, discounts on publications and resources, annual professional development opportunities, and access to collegial network of colleagues throughout the string profession.
