The Drosophila Board meets annually during the Flymeeting to
discuss issues of relevance to the fly community. The Board is
composed of:
- regional representatives who represent *you*.
- the present, immediate past and future meetings organizers.
- ex officio members representing stock centers, DIS, DIN,
Between meetings, the Board is polled by its president on any
other issue that may need attention. Board reps serve three-year
terms; the terms are staggered.
With this posting I am listing the main issues that were
discussed at the last Board meeting. Please contact your regional
rep if you would like
further details, or if you have comments or issues that you want
brought up at future Board meetings.
