Association for Systems Management. Calgary Chapter fonds
75 cm of textual records. -- 1 audio cassette
The Systems and Procedures Association was formed in the USA in 1947, and began to gain membership in Calgary in the late 1950s. A Calgary charter was granted in 1964 with K.W. Woodhead as its president. In 1969 the name of the organization was changed to the Association for Systems Management, and it was under this name that the Calgary chapter was incorporated under the Alberta Societies Act in 1975. The purposes of the association are to promote a broader understanding of the systems function of effective management, to encourage high professional standards, to engage in research, and conduct educational seminars and conferences.
