ABSTRACT
This article highlights the 1970 convention of the Speech Communication Association (SCA) in New Orleans, Louisiana. The New Orleans convention provided perspective from which to view the reconstituted organization of the SCA. The new Constitution dissolved the old Interest Groups. Their members, with some stress and greater or lesser difficulties, relocated themselves in the new structure of divisions. Divisional organization is still shaking down but many problems were solved as the membership demonstrated a commendable flexibility in long hours of scheduled and unscheduled meetings. When the fourth and final session of the SCA Legislative Council adjourned on the last day of the convention without having received requests for help or petitions of protest from the new Divisions, the Council interpreted this as indirect evidence of progress. At this point, the structure devised to implement the new Constitutions appears to be operable.
