ABSTRACT
This article encourages members of the Speech Communication Association (SCA) in the U.S. to continue and renew their commitment and enthusiasm for the association. While the sense of renewal generated by a convention is sometimes of short duration, there are good reasons for our enthusiasm to persist throughout the entire year. Judging from the 1978 Minneapolis convention, we are feeling increasingly comfortable in our association structures. The divisions continue to be effective agencies for convention planning and professional dialogue. The sections, now in their third year, are attracting the commitment of more and more members and are providing special convention programming appropriate to the interests and needs of students, elementary and secondary teachers, community college instructors and applied communication specialists. Our boards, caucuses, commissions, committees and task forces continue to provide means for dealing with professional issues and problems and for ensuring breadth in convention program offerings. We should be encouraged as well by the continuing improvement in the quality of our scholarship and by the apparent stabilization of our membership. We should also be encouraged by the quality of services that the SCA continues to provide for its members.
