Default Deadline Feb 28th! Funding and register to nominatevote (NorthAmerican researchers)

(Topic 1) *Funding for U.S. and North American Arabidopsis



**This year's meeting will be in Beijing, China from June 20th-23rd, 2007**

The NAASC would like U.S. and North American Arabidopsis researchers to be
aware of two funding opportunities:

*Full* funding is available for up to 8 U.S. individuals who are members of
under-represented minority groups and scientists at Minority-Serving
Institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and 1890

*Partial* travel supplements ($1,000 each) are available for up to 20
individuals from North America (Canada, U.S., Mexico, Central America).
Eligible individuals include graduate students, postdoctoral researchers,
and junior faculty (within 2 years of initial appointment)

*NOTE: Adviser's letter of recommendation may be emailed separately*

For complete details: [Only registered users see links. ]

(Topic 2) As in previous years, we will soon solicit nominations for the
election of two new members to the North American Arabidopsis Steering
Committee (NAASC).

nominate and/or vote for the new NAASCers must ***first register with TAIR**
([Only registered users see links. ]). Deadline to
register at TAIR to be included in nominations is Feb. 28, 2007.

-- An email requesting nominations will be sent to North American TAIR
members on or around March 1, 2007.

-- The nomination deadline is March 31, 2007. Once nominees are confirmed, a
second email will request members to vote for up to 2 names on the list.

-- The voting deadline will be April 30, 2007.

-- Once votes are tallied, the top 2 vote getters will be contacted and
their willingness to serve confirmed. Winners will be announced around the
middle of May.

Members serve for four full calendar years, beginning around the date of the
Annual International Conference on Arabidopsis Research, and rotating off
following the Conference held in their fourth year of service.

-- Originally established in 1992 in response to the need for elected North
American representatives to the Multinational Arabidopsis Steering
Committee, NAASC has evolved into the main organizing and fundraising body
for the International Conference on Arabidopsis Research when it is held in
North America.

-- The NAASC also helps ensure solicitation and choice of the conference
site for every third meeting, which is held outside of North America. The
NAASC solicits funds to help North American junior scientists travel to
these international meetings. Additionally, the NAASC serves as a liaison
between members of the community and government and not-for-profit granting
agencies and provides representation of the community to service facilities
such as ABRC and TAIR.
