Status Report on State and Regional Research Associations.
Enell, Nancy C.
Results of a survey on organizational characteristics and issues are presented. The report updates a survey conducted in 1978, and where appropriate compares findings with those of the earlier survey. Ten state associations and seven regional associations responded to a questionnaire soliciting information regarding: organizational size; membership costs; types of publications issued by the organization; the frequency, duration and activities of association meetings; changes anticipated in the next three years. Results indicate that average association membership dropped on the state level and increased regionally with a slight overall increase. Newsletters, the most commonly used publication, also increased in use; on the other hand, journal production declined. Meeting content and format remained fairly uniform and each association had at least one meeting per year. One major change occurring was the 25 percent rise in annual membership costs. Increases in member participation and in the number and type of publications were areas in which change was anticipated. (AEF)
