Interest in creating a new Professional Interest Community requires submission of a Proposal Form, for approval by the SITC Executive Committee. This proposal shall include the proposed name, specific area of interest, the scope and purpose of the proposed community and the names of 10 founding members with a designated chair. Any proposed community will not duplicate that of an existing group.
A Professional Interest Community can be dissolved if the number of dues paying members falls below the minimum required number (10) or if the community fails to meet the criteria outlined above.
Each Professional Interest Community will have a chair and co-chair with two-year terms. Each group is required to hold an election within their community to vote in a new co-chair, who will ascend to chair. Candidates for co-chair are self-nominated. Votes require a 10 percent vote of the community members.
Prior to distribution, the SITC Board of Directors must approve all items produced with SITC’s name attached. All materials and publications created by the Professional Interest Communities are a representation of SITC and are intellectual property of the society.
