India Chapter Constitution

Post by Sushil Bajpai » Sat Jan 02, 2010 2:00 am

Thanks karan for your e-mail this morning which inspired me check out this forum.

I write with a bit of trepidatiuon. There is no doubt that we need an India Chapter of the SDS, if for nothing else than to get together for advocay and education of the principles of system dynamics. However, we also need to ensure that it does not wrap itself in insularity platform where system dynamicists preach the virtues of system dynamics to each other. Some of us from Pune and Mumbai have been thinking about initiating India Chapter for some years now. It is great to see an initiative in this direction.

In my e-mail this morning I noticed that Karan Khosla had taken time and effort to draft the Constitution of the India Chapter. I think the consitution in its present form is simple to understand, flexible and implementable.

I'd go along with it as is, instead of prolonged discussions about how and what and millions of other details. They could come in time.

Tell me Karan how could I be of some help. Let's get started right-away.

Thank you for initiating the India chapter. As you have rightly pointed out, we need to get started and as more people join, the details can be worked out...

Hello Karan,

Great initiative! I support it and believe this is the starting point to have people with commom interest in SD to participate in a forum. The draft constitution looks ok to me and I think we should go ahead with it; changes can be added to it through new resolutions over time.

Let us know how to support it.

Regards
Dipayan Mitra

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for taking the time to read the draft constitution. I don't think we need to make the constitution guidelines too rigid or worry about a publication just yet; to begin with, if we can hold initial conferences on Skype it would be good to get the ball rolling. The idea, as far as I am concerned, is to learn as much as we can from each other about application of the systems approach to our work in India.

For example, Sushil, as I too have been using group model building exercises with some of our clients, I would be grateful, if you could post (on another sub-board) your approach and experiences.

Our main effort, initially, must be to collect at least ten members - which should not be hard. Registration is not expensive and the Quarterly Journals by Wiley are well worth the money.

Please make sure your subscriptions are up to date with the Society!

Best Wishes,

Karan

Dear Colleagues,

For all those who are committed, could you please send me a very brief letter (scanned and emailed to karankhosla@gmail.com) indicating that you agree so far to the terms of the Chapter constitution and that you have verified (renewed or applied anew) that you are current member of the Society.

Once I receive your letters, I will send them along with the Constitution to the Society for approval.

Best Wishes,

Karan
