Dear RosEXEC member,


The White Paper Revision Committee has met and begun work revising the White Paper.  Initially, we will not be soliciting input from the entire Rosaceae Community, but will solicit input from you, the RosEXEC, as representatives of the community. 


Over the next few days you will be receiving emails from committee members regarding portions of the White Paper being considered for revision.  These emails will contain the current Executive Summary text and bulleted points suggesting changes to be made. 


Please respond.  At a minimum, “good idea” or “bad idea” and why it is a bad idea.  The more input you can provide, the better.


Please discuss these proposed changes with your colleagues and funnel community input back to the committee.


Address your responses to
