Promises and Pitfalls in the Development of Professional Associations.
Farquhar, Robin H.
This paper discusses the development of a professional organization--the Inter-American Council on Educational Administration. The first half offers a descriptive summary of five professional associations, several of them serving members internationally. The second half of the paper summarizes the advantages and disadvantages of professional organizations and offers suggestions for solving problems that arise. The paper concludes that every successful organization has devised unique characteristics of structure and operation that are appropriate to its purposes, clients, and setting. (Author/LD)
