AAAS Council Meeting—A Reminder
The next meeting of the AAAS Council will take place during the Annual Meeting and will begin at 9:00 a.m. on 18 February 2007 in San Francisco, Calif., in the Imperial Ballroom of the Hilton San Francisco.
Individuals or organizations wishing to present proposals or resolutions for possible consideration by the Council should submit them in written form to the AAAS Chief Executive Officer Alan Leshner by 15 November 2006. This will allow time for them to be considered by the Committee on Council Affairs at their fall meeting.
Items should be consistent with AAAS's objectives and be appropriate for consideration by the Council. Resolutions should be in the traditional format, beginning with "Whereas" statements and ending with "Therefore be it resolved."
Late proposals or resolutions delivered to the AAAS Chief Executive Officer in advance of the February 2007 Open Hearing of the Committee on Council Affairs will be considered provided that they deal with urgent matters and are accompanied by a written explanation of why they were not submitted by the November deadline. The Committee on Council Affairs will hold its open hearing at 2:30 p.m. on 17 February 2007 in Hilton Continental Ballroom 1 of the Hilton.
Summaries of the Council meeting agenda will be available during the annual meeting at both the AAAS Information Desk and in the AAAS Headquarters office. A copy of the full agenda will also be available for inspection in the Headquarters Office.
