ABSTRACT
This article presents an overview and guidelines for convention proposals to be presented at the 1971 convention of the Speech Communication Association (SCA) in the U.S. In addition to division-sponsored programs, four innovations in convention format are proposed: short courses, three-, six-, and nine-hour courses of instruction designed to update the practicing professional; action caucus, a series of day-long problem-solving groups; dimension, a series of programs competitively chosen; and forum, a platform for individual contributions to the convention program. Each SCA division will take full responsibility for planning five programs. Individual members, interested groups and divisions are invited to submit short course proposals for review by the Short Course Selection Committee. The following guidelines should be observed: the short course should deal with a recent development in theory, research method, instructional strategy, or social application in speech communication; the objective of the short course should be to impart to the participants an effective grasp of the course subject matter, not merely to present the latest findings; the subject of the proposed short course should be of potential interest to a significant number of SCA members; and the subject should be delimited so as to allow adequate coverage within a 3-hour, a 6-hour or a 9-hour course of instruction.
