1990-2010 (Linear Feet: 7. Collection Not Scanned)

The American Society for Pain Management Nursing (ASPMN) Collection comprises materials generated by and for the Society from its founding in 1990 to 2010. Of principal interest are the materials produced for every ASPMN annual meeting, which include statements of the Society's purpose and philosophy, information on its organizational structure, and copies of speakers' presentations. Also included are a series of position statements published by the ASPMN, copies of Society course materials for continuing education and published standards of practice, and the printed versions of the ASPMN newsletter, "Pathways." In addition to these more public materials is a partial set of administrative records. These include bound record-books that combine various meeting agenda, minutes, correspondence, and related items from the early 1990s; also present from the same period are sheets of financial accounts. Board of Directors' meeting minutes (to 2003) and business meeting minutes (to 2006) are present with some significant gaps in coverage. Correspondence files are quite limited, likely reflecting the much more extensive use of electronic communications during this period, none of which is preserved here. Three digital video discs are filed with the collection; these contain digital versions of (1) the 2006 and (2) the 2008 annual meeting materials, and (3) a collection of digital images taken at the 2007 and 2008 meetings.
