Student Involvement Across the Botanical Society of America.
IN 2005 we held a discussion session focused on building a structure for increased student involvement across the Botanical Society of America. The discussion topics included 1) student representation to the Executive Committee (the governing board of the Society); 2) student service on BSA committees; 3) the formation of a student run council that would contribute to the ongoing activities of the Society; 4) recruitment of new student members; 5) activities and services that would increase student participation in the BSA and the annual meeting.
We are pleased to report we have moved forward in all areas of discussion held in Austin. We look for your participation in taking further actions here at the meeting in Chico. As a group, you elected Mackinzie Taylor as your representative to the BSA Council. She will lead the discussion as we establish an effective model for student involvement in all aspects of the Society. There will be a student mixer shortly following the discussion. We welcome additional topics.
