Chapter History


ISPI-SD: Our Humble Beginnings


Early in 1979, our chapter had its start. Ruth Ashley, Judy Fernandez, Allison Rossett, and Bob Sansom met in a restaurant on Clairemont Mesa Blvd. to discuss forming a local chapter of NSPI (as it was called at that time). Ruth and Judy were active national members and had been active in other NSPI chapters around the country. Allison, who had joined the Educational Technology faculty at San Diego State University in 1977, was a national member. Bob, a student in the Educational Technology program, was also a national member.


An initial meeting was held to generate interest in forming a local chapter. Everyone was invited to that meeting: national NSPI members living in San Diego, personal friends, and representatives from a half dozen or so training companies. By the end of that meeting, the required 20 people were signed up as national members, the first executive board was elected, and those interested became the original charter members. A tentative constitution, which Ruth Ashley and Judy Fernandez adapted from other NSPI chapter constitutions, was accepted for a six-month trial period.


The San Diego chapter was formed the next day with a call to the NSPI national office. The newly-formed San Diego chapter was immediately asked to host the 1982 national conference. We accepted and the adventure of building a chapter began. As a result of planning for and hosting the 1982 national conference, the chapter became a cohesive group.
