Stating your general objectives does not reveal much of your hand.
Does the RosEXEC have no role to play in facilitating the community's
response to this granting opportunity? PIs could choose to not reveal
the details of their proposals to other PIs. If the community is so
competitive that we do not even want to reveal our intentions to submit
a proposal, can the RosEXEC expect to do much more than periodically
revise the White Paper.

I could not be on the c-call... inaccessible this week.
I hope that RosEXEC has a minimal role in gatekeeping/organizing etc.
We each know the players and the best way to pursue teambuilding. Why
broadcast our intentions to the rest of the world when they aren't
showing their cards? Especially innovative topics (that may arise)
from Rosaceae proposals should be kept under the hat, especially with
the short time frame.

Subject: Re: [ROSEXEC-LIST] Slight Time Change ### RosEXEC Conference
call -Date:Monday June 2 Time NOW 4:15 PM Eastern US
Excellent discussion yesterday. In our next conference call I suggest
we try to focus on resolving some specific questions. Here are my top
1. Will the FY08 NRI RoseCAP be submitted to the Specialty Crop Program
My read of the discussion was that the NRI RoseCAP would not be
submitted to the Specialty Crop Program as a CAP proposal. There were 2
alternatives presented a) it be withheld for submission as a FY09 NRI
CAP proposal and b) it serve as the basis for a larger Coordinated
Systems Project (CSP).
2. What role will the RosEXEC play in the Specialty Crop Program grant
It is clear that there will be several proposals submitted from the
Rosaceae community to this program. I do not think the RosEXEC can or
should try to be a gatekeeper in the grant submission process. Rather, I
think we will better serve the community by functioning as a conduit for
communication and community organization. I suggest that we a) forward
information about the Specialty Crop Program to the entire US Rosaceae
community through the GDR and b) we request community members to make us
aware if they plan to submit a proposal to the program, the type of
proposal they plan to submit, and the project objectives. The RosEXEC
could then make PIs aware of other members of the community with similar
objectives to facilitate team building. The PIs could then determine for
themselves if team building makes sense or they wish to submit competing
or different proposals.
3. Will the RosEXEC attempt to coordinate the submission of a single CSP
from the Rosaceae community or leave it to individual community members
to organize their own proposals?

Subject: [ROSEXEC-LIST] Slight Time Change ### RosEXEC Conference call
-Date:Monday June 2 Time NOW 4:15 PM Eastern US
There were three people that had a slight time problem so if it is OK
with the rest of you we'll start 45 min later. So same date (Monday
June 2) but at 4:15 PM.
I will log on at 3:30 PM just in case someone does not get this Email or
if someone needs to communicate something to the group but cannot make
it at the later time - trying to be as accommodating as possible. I
appreciate your patience and service.
Below are the instructions for logging in to the conference system -
they have not changed from last time. Talk to you then.
All the best, Gennaro
