Scope and content

There are four General Meetings of the Institute each year. They are the Winter General Meeting, the Summer General Meeting, the Pacific General Meeting and the Fall General Meeting. The Winter Meeting is usually held in New York and the Fall Meeting usually in Chicago. The Summer Meeting, which is the Annual Business Meeting, is held in various cities around the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Immediate source of acquisition


The original order of the records is physically evident in the way the records are placed in each folder: the original folders have been maintained in order to maintain the evidence of the original arrangement. Also the different colours used for each type of record is an indication of the different purpose of each document: meeting reports (pale yellow, Form 41), annual meeting reports announcement (blue), technical discussion groups (yellow if not included in the blue general annual meeting announcement).
