The article presents information on the report of the Ad Hoc Committee on Referenda of the U.S. Speech Communication Association (SCA), which was approved by the SCA Legislative Council. The charge of the Committee on Referenda is as follows: "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 Article II, Section 1 of the bylaws of SCA, it was stated, "The purpose of the association shall be to promote study, criticism, research, teaching, and publication, and application of the artistic, humanistic, and scientific principles of communication, particularly speech communication." In addition to matters related to the purpose of SCA, the Legislative Council addresses administrative issues, such as the selection of potential locations for future meetings, appointment of committees, consideration of the budget, and the like. Hence, it is thereby recommended that all resolutions which commit the association to rescinding contractual arrangements with parties external to SCA shall be referred to the membership in the form of referendum.
