THE INTERNATIONAL TRANSACTIONAL ANALYSIS ASSOCIATION BYLAWS
In 1958 the founder of transactional analysis (TA), Dr. Eric Berne began a series of meetings under the name of the San Francisco Social Psychiatry Seminars. On May 6, 1960, the State of California granted a charter for the organization as a nonprofit educational corporation, which later became known as the San Francisco Transactional Analysis Seminar. In 1965 this Seminar became known as the International Transactional Analysis Association (ITAA). In 1987 two of the ITAA committees, the Board of Certification and the Training Standards Committee were independently incorporated as a separate corporation known as the Training and Certification Council of Transactional Analysts.
