SAM History

The first name appearing in the "Board members" column is the officer whose term would expire in the next year. The last name in the board members typically is the newly elected board member. In each row, the two years in the first column generally refer to the period between the two annual AAG meetings. The contents of this page will be best viewed in FireFox.

Note: The real history of the specialty group is made by energetic individuals serving the group with great ideas and visions. What is mentioned here however is only a small window of the specialty group. This specialty group was created in 1979 under the name "Mathematical Modeling & Quantitative Methods." In the 2000 business meeting, the specialty group voted to change the name to Spatial Analysis and Modeling. Information presented here was collected in Spring 2009. With great help from many former officers, I was able to reconstruct a partial account of the specialty group history. This page is still under construction and therefore only contains incomplete information. (NCX09)
