ABSTRACT
This article deals with the resolution adopted by the 1978 Legislative Council of the Speech Communication Association (SCA) in the U.S. regarding the association's handling of controversial resolutions. Given the controversy created by the 1977 Legislative Council decision to move SCA conventions from cities in states that have not ratified the Equal Rights Amendment, the 1978 Legislative Council approved the following resolution: "Be it resolved that the president shall appoint a committee to develop recommendations concerning when and under what circumstances the best interests of the association may be met by a referendum by the membership, this committee to report to the Legislative Council at its first meeting in 1979." In keeping with this resolution, Gerard Hauser of Pennsylvania State University has been appointed chairperson of a five member committee to provide suitable recommendations. All members of the association are invited to communicate with professor Hauser prior to April 1, 1979 in order that committee deliberations may be informed by the advice of concerned members. In a related action, the Legislative Council postponed consideration of 1978 Resolution O until the report of this special committee has been considered.
