Preface

The AIDC 100 Collection is the fourth collection to be accessioned for inclusion in the AIDC 100 Archive at Stony Brook. The collection provides an overview of the organizational structure of the AIDC 100 organization. Material will be added as it is generated and acquired by the Special Collections Department.

Special thanks are extended to the following individuals for all their support during the planning and processing of this collection: Kristen J. Nyitray, Head of Special Collections and University Archives for her assistance and support and Sean Torre for his technical assistance and guidance.

Introduction

Manuscript Collection 355 is comprised of the organizational papers of the AIDC 100. On November 13, 2001, during the annual AIDC 100 meeting at the McCormick place in Chicago, it was announced that the organization's web site would be switched from Rick Bushnell's servers to Tina Barkan's server at Symbol Technologies, Inc. It was decided shortly after returning from this meeting that the AIDC 100's only source of organizational information was contained on the group's web site, and therefore any substantive changes that might occur during the transfers process might lose or change the current page. To provide researchers with an overview of the original organizational structure and information contained on the site, a printed and electronic version of the web site was created by Special Collections at Stony Brook University.

The collection is open to research without restrictions in accordance with general access principles, and under the discretion of the Special Collections.. The collection's creator (AIDC 100) maintains copyright to all organizational publications and papers contained on the web site. All requests to use or reproduce any of these publications should be addressed to the Special Collections prior to use.

In citing the collection, please credit it as follows: AIDC 100 Collection, Special Collections, University Libraries, Stony Brook University.

Materials within this collection may be located with the use of the collection's finding aid available in hardcopy and online through the University's Library web page.

Organizational Note

The AIDC 100 is a relatively new organization comprised of individuals from throughout the AIDC (automatic identification and data capture) industry. The group was established in 1996 by founding members Chet Benoit, George Goldberg, and Ben Nelson, as a way for like minded members of the AIDC industry to come together under the common goal of furthering the world's understanding of the scope of AIDC (automatic identification and data capture) technologies impact on business, manufacturing and people. Below is the AIDC 100's Charter. It has been duplicated in its entirety to provide researchers with an exact explanation of the organization's mission, objectives and guidelines. More information may be obtained by contacting the AIDC 100's web site at: www.aidc100.org.

1. Mission

AIDC 100 is a non-profit, self-sustaining, non-political association of automatic identification / data capture (AIDC) professionals and others who have significantly contributed to the growth and advancement of the industry.
The organization is a technical and business resource -- with emphasis on education -- whose primary goal is to enlarge the business community's knowledge and understanding of AIDC.

2. Objectives

To serve as a resource for those vendors, users, potential users and others seeking unbiased information about AIDC technology and markets.
To provide a forum for the exchange of information among its members. This forum may include the distribution of technical papers, peer review of articles, and discussion groups to address current industry problems.
To establish a speakers bureau to make available expert presenters for industry meetings.
To afford an opportunity for social interaction among members.

3. Membership

There are three classes of membership:
Active: An Active Member must be currently involved with AIDC activities. AIDC 100 will be limited to 100 Active Members.

Emeritus: An Emeritus Member is no longer actively involved with AIDC activities. An Active Member will become Emeritus after having left active involvement in AIDC activities for one year. There is no limit to the number of Emeritus Members.

Sponsoring: A Sponsoring Member will be a publication whose primary editorial focus and audience is AIDC-related.
Membership will include individuals from the vendor, user and other communities and will not be restricted to any geographic location.

Individuals will be invited to membership and approved solely at the discretion of the Nominating Committee. The Nominating Committee will consist of three members elected by the Active Members. All membership nominations and approvals will require a unanimous vote by the Membership Committee.

The AIDC 100 Collection consists of two series: AIDC 100 Organizational Files and Electronic Media. The first series is a paper version of the AIDC 100's web site located at www.aidc100.org. this series was created as a viable method of preserving the organization's web site which is their main source of communication and information about the group.
