Polly Strong Resolution under consideration at 2004 AAA Business Meeting

Date: November 14, 2004
To: Mac Marshall, AAA Secretary
From: Pauline Turner Strong, President, Society for Cultural Anthropology


RESOLUTION FOR CONSIDERATION AT 2004 AAA BUSINESS MEETING

Whereas all AAA members are required to join a Section;

Whereas much of the intellectual work of the AAA is conducted by the Sections;

Whereas the decisions of the AAA Executive Board directly impact the activities and finances of the Sections;

Whereas the AAA Executive Board relies on the Sections for providing a conduit for communications with Section members; and

Whereas the current organization of the AAA makes no provision for the direct representation of the Sections on the Executive Board, except through the non-voting Section Convenor:

Be it resolved that an ad hoc Governance and Communications Committee be established to formulate proposals for (1) reforming the relationship between the AAA Executive Board and the Sections and (2) facilitating communication and feedback mechanisms between annual meetings within the AAA as a whole. The Committee will be composed of the AAA President, the Section Convenor, and an equal number of representatives of the AAA Executive Board and the Section Assembly.

The implementation of this resolution should fall within the ordinary budget of the AAA Executive Board, except for any necessary travel on the part of the representatives of the Section Assembly.

Respectfully submitted,
Pauline T. Strong, President
Society for Cultural Anthropology
