ASSP Region VIII Delegate Caucus

Society has proposed a change from a House of Delegates to an Advisory Group. As such the Boston Delegates want to share this transformation with all membership and gather interest so we represent members opinions when the vote is held in early 2022.

The last 18 months have brought many challenges, changes and opportunities, sometimes all rolled into a single situation. ASSP’s 2021 governance proposal certainly falls in that category. It’s challenging to consider changing a long-standing system – the House of Delegates – perhaps more so because the Society has traditionally been slow to move and make decisions.

This is a unique opportunity to reposition ASSP and secure a sustainable future for the Society and our profession.

During the annual ASSP House of Delegates meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 28, delegates will be discussing a new business item that would change ASSP’s governance structure – namely transitioning the House of Delegates to an at-large advisory group.


The Boston delegates will attend a Region VIII caucus meeting on September 21 at 11:00 a.m. ET. Under ASSP bylaws, these meetings are designed to bring together delegates from across a region to discuss issues before a vote by the full House of Delegates. Region Vice President Ed Zimmer will lead the meeting, which will focus on the governance proposal and what the change would mean for members, our member communities and the Society. Members of the Board of Directors and the Governance Task Force will also be on hand to help answer your questions.
