AAAS Council Meeting—A Reminder
The next meeting of the AAAS Council will take place during the AAAS Annual Meeting and will begin at 9:00 a.m. on 17 February 2008 in Boston, Massachusetts in the Republic Ballroom of the Sheraton Boston Hotel.
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 19 November 2007. 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 2008 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 16 February 2008 in the Commonwealth Room of the Sheraton Boston.
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 in the Hynes Convention Center.
