Inspired by recent US Arabiopsis Steering Committee example, cited 
on this bulletin board by Elliot Meyerowitz, UK Arabidopsis 
researchers recently voted for one of the two UK places on the nine 
member Arabidopsis Multinational Steering Committee.  This was 
implemented to ensure fluidity of membership on the committee.  The 
slot was made available by Caroline Dean standing down after 
serving on the committee since its inception.

Three nominations for the UK place were received and following an 
e-mail election, Bernard Mulligan, from the Dept. of Life Science at 
Nottingham University and Head of the Nottingham Arabidopsis Stock 
Centre, was elected. 

The other UK slot is occupied by Dick Flavell, Director of the John 
Innes Centre.  He will stand down in due course and a replacement 
will be elected.

Perhaps a similar mechanism could be put into place to ensure 
rotation of members from all countries represented on the 
Multinational Steering Committee?
