지역 지부 개편의 목적

지금까지 지역지부 이름으로 학교명, 도시명, 주명을 혼용하면서 혼란이 있었고, 신설 지부가 생길 때마다 발생하는 문제를 최소화하는 취지에서 2016년 협회 창립 30 주년을 계기로 지부 명칭 및 관할 지역 변경에 착수하였다. 이에 따라 원칙적으로 지부명은 각 지부가 관할 가능한 최대 영역으로 표시하고, 기존 지부 내에서 새로운 지부가 만들어질 경우에는 그 지역을 세분화하기로 하였다. 이렇게 함으로써 각 지부 관할구역을 명확하게 정의하고 각 지부에서 교류할 수 있는 회원들의 분포 지역을 넓혔다.

지부 개편 방법 및 추진 현황

  • 지부 현황, 주요 도시 및 소속 대학, 접근성, 회원 수, 향후 성장 가능성, 공식 지역 명칭 등을 고려해 11지부로 개편하되 지부의 숫자는 그대로 유지한다.
  • 이에 따라 변화가 없는 지부, 지부명이 변경되면서 관할지역이 일부 변경된 지부, 합치고 나누어져서 재구성된 지부, 그리고 아직 회원이 없는 지역이 지부 관할 지역으로 포함되었다.
  • 지부 명칭은 정부나 주에서 사용하는 National Capital Region, Mainland British Columbia, Central and Southern Alberta, Greater Toronto 등의 공식 명칭을 최대한 사용하였다.
  • School Chapter, Professional Society가 속하는 지부를 명시하였다.
  • Professional Society(KONA, KESC, Medical Korean-BC)에 속하는 지부 결정이 필요한 경우 추후 결정하기로 한다.
  • 이 지부 개편안은 2017년 자문위원회에 제출되었고, 자문위원회에서는 의견을 종합하여 2017년 8월 이사회에 의결 안건으로 제출하였다.
  • 이사회에서는 지부 개편안을 의결하였으며, Windsor 지부는 지부의 위치 및 구성원의 특성을 고려하여 당분간 개편을 보류하기로 함에 따라 지역명을 가진 지부로서의 자격을 당분간 유지하기로 하였다.
