Since at least 2005 the SAA Council periodically has discussed the value of affinity groups (i.e., sections and roundtables) to the organization as well as their structure, functioning, and support needs. Several appointed groups in 2013 and 2014 analyzed the issues and recommended changes. A proposal fielded for member comment in July 2015 met with significant concern during and after the August 22 Annual Membership Meeting. The Council now seeks member comments on a revised set of recommendations for changes to the structure and requirements for SAA sections and roundtables.
Read the full proposal—including background, guiding principles, and suggested changes—here. Provide your comments on any aspect of the proposed changes below or at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, July 6. The Council will take action based on member feedback at its August 1 meeting in Atlanta.
