ABSTRACT
This article provides information on a program evaluation process, designed to examine the effectiveness and efficiency of Speech Communication Association (SCA) operations, created by a task force report approved by the Administrative Committee (AC) in the U.S. A meeting of the AC will be taking place in San Diego, California on September 7 to 9, 1996. Combined with and just prior to the AC meeting are concurrent meetings of the Finance Board and initiated in 1995, the officers with the executive director. The meeting of officers has already proved valuable in providing mutual awareness, feedback and support for each officer's goals; mentoring for each officer as they move to the next level; an opportunity to generate proposals related to the AC agenda for their consideration; and, hopefully, a seamless transition of individuals through the various offices in ways that increase the efficiency and effectiveness of each person. At their September meeting, the officers will begin to consider the SCA program evaluation for 1996. Three SCA departments are scheduled for evaluation each year on a five-year cycle. The 1994 departments included Membership, Affiliations, and Affirmative Action. In March 1994, the first evaluation team, comprised of Dale A. Herbeck, Carolyn Calloway-Thomas, and James W. Chesebro, was appointed by then president, Bruce E. Gronbeck. Their report was considered by the AC at their 1995 meeting.
