Thank you to the members who nominated new members and a quick reminder
that the deadline for new nominations is Friday November 20th.
Dear US Based Rosaceae Genomics and Genetics Community,
It is time to nominate the 2010 USRosEXEC and International Liaison
After three/four years of excellent service the following US members are
rotating off the RosEXEC committee:
* Albert Abbott (Amygdaloideae, Univ, S),
* Chad Finn (Rosoideae, ARS, W),
* Abhaya Dandekar (Maloideae, Amygdaloideae Univ, W)
* Schuyler Korban (Maloideae, Univ, E)
* Gennaro Fazio (Maloideae, ARS, E)
The committee thus loses:
* 1 Rosoideae, 2.5 Maloideae and 1.5 Amygdaloideae crop focus
* 3 university and 2 ARS representatives;
* 2 eastern location (E), 2 western location and 1 southern (S)
Members who will continue to serve in 2009 include Nahla Bassil, Chris
Dardick, Amit Dhingra, Jim Luby, Gayle Volk, Angela Baldo, Jim Hancock,
Jim McFerson, Bryon Sosinski, Philip Stewart and Cameron Peace, so no
need to nominate them as they will already be serving.
To help maintain a balanced committee, we are asking you to nominate, by
email, research and industry community members of whom one should have a
major focus on Rosoideae, two on Maloideae and two on Amygdaloideae.
Individuals with mixed focus can also be nominated. Please take this
into account when you nominate candidates and please confirm with the
prospective candidates that they are willing to be nominated and
potentially serve before you submit them as candidates to Nahla.
International liaison members rotating off this year include Sue
Gardiner (Aus/NZ), Herman Silva (South America) and Dan Sargent
(Europe). Remaining members through 2010 are Jasper Rees (Africa) and
Eric van de Weg (Europe). Two new members are needed to serve two year
terms where we are seeking at least one to be outside of Europe. Please
nominate candidates and again confirm their interest before submitting
US Rosaceae Genomics, Genetics and Breeding community members may
nominate as many candidates as you wish at this stage by sending a list
of the nominees to membership chair, Nahla Bassil at
nahla.bassil(a)ars.usda.gov. You have until November 20th to nominate
candidates. Following these nominations, we will compile a candidate
list for the actual vote via a webform. If you have any questions
please contact Nahla Bassil at the aforementioned email address.
