Rationale

At the SOCHIAS Assembly the board reports on the previous year's activities and active members can discuss new guidelines for the focus of the society. 

Typically, the SOCHIAS Assembly takes place on an afternoon on the annual SOCHIAS meeting and the rules state that it must happen between January and March of each year. On 2018, to improve collaborations with our neighbours, the annual meeting will be organized jointly with the Argentinian Astronomical Association (AAA) and it is scheduled for later in the year. 

2018 SOCHIAS Assembly is set for January 22, 2018, and it will consist on a full day of activities, during which, the member's meeting will take place. 

IMPORTANT!

At the Extraordinary Assembly, there will be a call for vote for changes on the Society's rules. 
SOCHIAS has taken all the (expensive) legal measures for these changes, but it will all be in vane if the neccesary quorum is not reached. 
Members may have a representative at the meeting (member or not) voting for them. 
More information on the proposed changes and procedures may be found in this page.

Resumen: La Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS), concibe la salud de manera integral definiéndola como «La salud es un estado de completo bienestar físico, mental y social, y no solamente la ausencia de afecciones o enfermedades» (OMS, 2013, p.9). De esta manera, el bienestar mental pasa a ser fundamental para alcanzar un estado saludable y con ello que las personas alcancen su potencial, manejen el estrés habitual de la vida, sean productivos y logren aportar a la comunidad desde cualquier área de desempeño. Siendo la salud fundamental para expresar nuestra capacidad individual y colectiva, se hace relevante revisar las principales nociones en salud mental. En la exposición se abordarán además factores de riesgo y factores protectores, con el objetivo de orientar aspectos a potenciar y disminuir dentro de la comunidad, ya sea científica, laboral o estudiantil. Por último, se revisarán los principales signos de alerta que suponen riesgos en los individuos, y se discutirá cómo abordarlos.
