Dear Aldo and SDS-Brasil members; I think this renovation of the SDS-Brasil chapter is adequate and welcome. I support its modifications.

Brazilian Chapter Membership Petition to Enact a New Chapter Constitution and to Appoint an Interim Chapter Policy Council

The members of the System Dynamics Society (SDS) affiliated to the Brazilian Chapter, listed below, would like to petition the SDS Policy Council to enact the new Chapter Constitution, attached, and to recognize the appointment of an interim Chapter Policy Council composed of: Niraldo José do Nascimento, as Chapter President; Ricardo Matos Chaim, as Chapter Liaison to the Society; and Isaías Custódio, as Chapter Secretary.


The Brazilian Chapter was founded in February of 2003. It enjoyed a period of thriving activity, culminating with a successful regional conference in Brasilia, in October of 2006. However, in 2007, the elected Chapter Liaison to the Society allowed his SDS membership to lapse. Since then, there has been no official Chapter representation and there have been no annual reports. The original Chapter Constitution did not foresee a mechanism for addressing a discontinuity in representation.

The membership of the SDS affiliated to the Brazilian Chapter gathered at the Annual Conferences and discussed the situation to decide on a path forward. In a recent inclusive debate, electronically and asynchronously, with drafts and endorsements posted in the SDS Forum, the membership revised its Constitution to promote leadership renewal while maintaining institutional continuity, and to create mechanisms for dealing with a hiatus in activity or representation.

The Chapter membership is united behind the new Chapter Constitution, attached, and appointed, by unanimous consent, an interim Chapter Policy Council to resume activities and to conduct formal elections during the Annual Meeting at the International Conference in Washington, DC, in July 2011. Therefore, at this time, the Chapter membership would like to submit its new Chapter Constitution for approval and recognition by the SDS Policy Council, to be able to enjoy legitimacy in resuming its activities.

Full Members in support:

1. Ramez Andraus Jr. (*)
2. Carlos Alberto Brandão (*)
3. Ricardo Matos Chaim (*)
4. Isaías Custódio (*)
5. Orlando Roque da Silva
6. Aline Regina Fernandes (*)
7. Júlio César de Bastos Figueiredo
8. Mário Cézar Freitas
9. Paulo Gonçalves
10. Antonio C.G. Lellis Vieira
11. Hazencleve Freire Medeiros (*)
12. Edmilson Alves de Moraes (*)
13. Marciano Morozowski Filho
14. Niraldo José do Nascimento
15. Roberto Max Protil
16. Rudolf Rosas Flunger
17. Lars Meyer Sanches
18. Joaquim Rocha dos Santos (*)
19. Erico Resende Santos
20. Luis Orlindo Tedeschi (*)
21. Mauricio Uriona Maldonado (*)
22. Aldo Zagonel (*)

(*) Independently verifiable endorsements (see viewtopic.php?f=14&t=196)

Two of the interim members of the Chapter Policy Council are members of the faculty at the University of Brasilia (Niraldo José do Nascimento and Ricardo Matos Chaim); the third is member of the faculty at the University of São Paulo (Isaías Custódio).

The official members of the Chapter Policy Council chose the following ex-officio members to take on specific responsibilities: Carlos Alberto Brandão, as Vice President of Electronic Presence; Aline Regina Fernandes, as Vice President of Substantive Meetings; and Luis Orlindo Tedeschi, as Vice President of Publications.

Since August 28, 2010, in email exchanges including all 33 Full Members of the Brazilian Chapter, and in the SDS Forum (under the rubric of Brazil Chapter Forum - Chapter Reconstitution), there have been no objections recorded by anyone regarding this initiative and we have only heard in support of the new Constitution and of the official and ex-officio Chapter-PC members specified above.
