Change. Change is good. Even President Obama won the presidential election of 2008 with the slogan, “Change you can believe in.” As voice clinicians, we work with our patients every day to assist them with change. Yet, when change comes knocking on our door, our first instincts are often to resist, because change is hard. But, change is inevitable, and, inevitably, change is coming to our division structure.
Between 1986 and 1990, ASHA began to offer the Special Interest Division program as a “value added” benefit of membership. In 1991, a document, entitled A Plan for Special Interest Divisions and Study Sections, was developed and disseminated. As I mentioned in the Coordinator's Column in the March 2010 issue of Perspectives, Division 3, Voice and Voice Disorders was officially recognized as a Special Interest Division with our first elected Coordinator in 1991. Since 1991, 17 Divisions have developed and thrived well beyond the original expectations of their role and the resources needed to run their programs.
