You are invited to join us on a journey to rediscover and appreciate the richness of our discipline during my presidential term. Grouped in monthly themes, we will explore traditional and emerging systems perspectives, with an added emphasis on reflection on interrelatedness of these different perspectives. Every fourth week, the session will be dedicated to intuitive reflection on the connections of the perspectives discussed during the month. I hope to create a rich library of material to be used by everyone entering the discipline or wishing to widen their own systems perspective.
Based on our experience of the past year, we decided not to have a weekly repeat of a main session, but rather alternate monthly between the two time slots used before. This means that during September, there will be one weekly session at 7 AM Pacific Daylight Time without any repeat, and October the sessions will be on Wednesdays at 7am in the Australian Eastern Standard Time (Sydney) without repeat. All sessions will be posted on ISSS shortly after completion. November will be on Saturdays, followed by December on Wednesdays, and so forth. Sessions will be announced in the Calendar on ISSS.org.
In November, the sessions move back to Saturdays with a base time of 7 AM on the West Coast of the USA. Since daylight savings time in the US is suspended on Sunday 6 Nov, the times will vary during this month.
