Historical development of professional associations

Application: Historical Development of Professional Associations

Over the years, human services organizations have evolved to respond to the challenges in their communities. This evolution may have created dramatic changes in the organizations over time. For example, the American Society of Criminology went through various changes since its inception in 1941. It began as The National Association of College Police Training Officials with eight male members who wanted to improve police training curricula. Today, it is called the American Society of Criminology (ASC). Over time, it has gone though changes in its scope, membership, and policies. In the 1960s, the first females joined this association. This prompted the need to expand resources to serve all of its members. Looking at the history of an organization can inform you of its historical development and future direction (Adler, 1997).

To prepare for this Application, choose a professional association in your area of interest. Review this association’s website, and research its historical development. This information is typically found in the “About” section of the association’s website. In addition, search the Walden Library and Internet for additional information.
