|The purpose of this meeting is to review, vote on, and thereby establish the SIG’s by-laws, given its aim, mission, objectives, and purview. Its aim is to advance behavior analysis nationally and internationally through its history and historiography. Its mission is to cultivate and nurture, enrich and improve, and disseminate the field’s history and historiography. Its objectives are to enhance (a) teaching: course content and pedagogy; (b) research: presentations, publications, and workshops; and (c) service: leadership, governance, and communications. Its purview is the field’s long past, short history, and recent origins. It audience includes behavior analysts, other scientists and humanists, and the public at large.
The by-laws will establish positions, policies, and procedures for the SIG’s governance and the succession of its governance (e.g., an Executive Council, Treasurer, Secretary) and for its committees and their succession (e.g., an awards program, bibliographies, communications, syllabus bank; identifying and creating archives; membership and website committees). These will be developed and vetted, in part, on the HoBA ListServ prior to the meeting. To become a member of the ListSev and part of the process, contact Pat Williams at WilliamsP@uhd.edu. SIG members interested in election to its governance and service on its committees should attend (or inform the SIG president prior to the meeting of their interests).|
